Cultural Synthesis in Research Pedagogy: The Puzzle of George Crabbe's "The Voluntary Insane"
Sondergard, Sidney L.
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2007 n1 Win 2007
One of the most direct approaches to addressing perceptions of a lack of disciplinary communication in higher education between the humanities/arts and the sciences, both social sciences and natural sciences, may be to encourage educators to construct pedagogies that extend beyond the traditional boundaries of their disciplines and that emphasize synthesis as both a methodology and an objective for student researchers. This essay models such a synthesis by drawing upon disciplines from within all three intellectual "cultures," as C.P. Snow referred to them, to examine the mystery of an unpublished work by English poet George Crabbe.
