The Forgotten Liberal Art Affirms Others
The Scientific breakthrough of the year has proved something that men like St. Augustine and TS Eliot had been affirming for centuries. According to SMH, reporting on Science’s monthly report on the Genome Project, “Memory of past events and imagination about the future are intimately linked. The part of the brain called the hippocampus plays a role in both.”
I may seem sarcastic when I say that science continues to prove what many philosophers and theologians have believed for ages, while also correcting many errors that they like to fall into. The “forgotten liberal art” is making leaps and bounds to affirm the other liberal arts in ways unimaginable in the foregoing materialist empirical age. Good show you great women and men who slave over your microscope!
