In general, the knowledge can be divided into two types:
natural knowledge and social knowledge. Science and math are the important
component of former, while art and literature are essential parts of the
latter. In my opinion, both of these are very important to any individual.
The reason goes as follows:
First, only complete knowledge can make a really
knowledgable man/woman. We know that the world consists of not only the
object studied by the subject like science and math, such as stars and
flowers, but also consists of the beautiful and attractive things such as
poems, paitings, which is studied by the subjects like art and literature.
Lack of knowledge will lead to an imcomplete view about the world.
Secondly, the study subjects like art and literature are
helpful for the development of subjects like science and math. There are
some rules that goven both types of subject, the master of one subject may
be beneficial to the development of another subject. It is because of this
reason that many great people are great artists as well as a scientists.
It is known that Einstein played well in violin while he is acknowledged
as a great physicist. It is believed by some people that grasp both types
of knowledge is essential for anyone wish to be successful in the new
Ofcourse, the study of science and math is very
important. It is the study of them produce our modern society. However, an
additional master of art and literature will make our life more colorful,
and even more successful.
