9781107402706: The Two Cultures Controversy: Science, Literature and Cultural Politics in Postwar Britain

Ever since the scientist-turned-novelist C. P. Snow clashed with literary critic F. R. Leavis in the early 1960s, it has been a commonplace to lament that intellectual life is divided between 'two cultures', the arts and sciences. Yet why did a topic that had long been discussed inspire such ferocious controversy at this particular moment? This book answers that question by recasting this dispute as an ideological conflict between competing visions of Britain's past, present, and future. It then connects the controversy to simultaneous arguments about the mission of the university, the methodology of social history, the reasons for 'national decline', and the fate of the former empire. By excavating the political stakes of the 'two cultures' controversy, this book explains the workings of cultural politics during the 1960s more generally, while also revising the meaning of a term that continues to be evoked to this day.

Book Description:

The 'two cultures' dispute between C. P. Snow and F. R. Leavis continues to be evoked in discussions about the relationship between the arts and science. However, this text shows that this was not simply a disciplinary debate but was instead an ideological conflict between competing visions of British society and culture.

About the Author:

Guy Ortolano teaches modern British history at New York University.
