'Arts' people under attack

Shakespeare would have grasped wave functions, Donne would have understood complementarity and relative time. They would have been excited. What richness! They would have plundered this new science for their imagery. And they would have educated their audiences too. But you "arts" people, you're not only ignorant of these magnificent things, you're rather proud of knowing nothing.

Writer Ian McEwan (1948-), from his dystopian novel The Child in Time (1987).
