Visual Mathematics: A missing link in a Split Culture

Denes Nagy

We have just one culture although this is split into two "hemispheres": art and the humanities versus science and technology. Both hemispheres include further regions. Obviously, we need some links between the two "hemispheres of culture", as the corpus callosum connects the two main parts of the human brain. The main goal of the International Society for the Interdisciplinary Study of Symmetry (ISIS-Symmetry) is to provide a "symmetric bridge" between art and science (also hoping that goddess Isis, nomen est omen, may help us).
