Preface (excerpt)

The Arts and Sciences bicker for the right to define man. The excerpt......
What is a person? Does art peer into the soul while science exams the machine? Does it make sense that each person is two independent entities: A mechanical entity and an ethereal entity?......(Leonardo) was unable to nail down the illusive and sought-after interconnectivity of art and science.

Of all the domains of science, of pure technics, it lacks a domain of value. Technocrats subtract “value” (of the human being) out of the equations, because “value” cannot be quantified, in fact, its existence cannot be substantiated. The arts search for the definition of man…his value.
