It’s always interesting to find poets and novelists influenced by science. Here is a poet obviously influenced by Darwin’s theory of evolution:
“[Asnyk’s] cycle of 30 sonnets, Nad głębiami (“Over the Depths”), was published in 1883–84. In it he stresses the evolutionary character of nature; the struggle for survival is shown not as the law of the jungle but as a mutual interdependence and cooperation between human communities. Deprived of independence and doomed to a political death, Poland, according to Asnyk, would be reborn sooner or later because it refused to commit ‘spiritual suicide.'”
I think it would be interesting to create a science textbook that contains art and literature inspired by scientific principles. Why not educate both sides of the brain?
