[...] i use the word “science” to mean really all those areas of human knowledge, still a small part of human life, all those areas of human knowledge where we can tell each other what we have done and what we have found. This knowledge is historical, sociological, economic, mathematical, anthropological, astronomical, among many other forms. It is in just such fields that you have been working. I know that the word “humanities” can be used to talk about the whole range of expression that men give to their experience. I think the analogies that bind archaeology to astronomy are not very much more remote than those that bind anthropology to astronomy; I speak to you in this sense as fellow scientists.
