As we have discussed over the course of the semester, the line between science and literature is now blurred. Or at least is partially blurred. As we spoke in our closing classes about our final reflections and what we had learned over the course of the semester I thought a lot about all of those lines separating the 2 disciplines. I finally came to the conclusion that some of the lines are blurred, but there are still some very concrete borders. I think in the broader arena, the purpose of this class isn't necessarily what I've learned specifically about evolution, but rather the importance of thinking in different ways. Recognizing that the lines between science and literature are blurred is most important because it teaches and reminds us that there are different ways to approach problems and we are capable of using all of these different ways. If we understand that borders can be crosses, we can more easily use a different kind of knowledge to solve complex problem that while on the surface may seem one-dimensional, but are in reality cross-disciplinary.
