Art is more important than science. You can see it very well in Medal of Honor for Arts and Sciences from the House of Orange.† Last Monday, Dr. / Astronaut Andre Kuipers was allowed to do so Receive the gem† OK, a gem, it’s still quite large, as can be seen in the photo where Kuipers are shown passes through the tape†
This makes him one of seven scholars to be awarded the Medal of Honor. In the past, a single wheel maker (Dafjee) was also honored. But the vast majority of medals went to artists. Thirty-two to be exact.
If the king and his predecessors valued art more than science, is it any wonder that his subjects turned to science?
What is noteworthy in the list of winners: not a single artist is a scientist either. “Medal of Honor for Arts or Science” would be a better title.
†Scientists and artists in all respects are rare(Art on Sunday, September 8, 2013). Certainly of the kind of Leonardo da Vinci (including engineer, physicist, anatomist, sculptor, and painter) and Galileo Galilei (physicist, astronomer, mathematician, philosopher, and painter).
Life in the fourteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries may have been less active than it is today, but it is highly unlikely that the masters would have completed a successful study in all those fields. Not to mention building a scientific career with it. But the romantic image of “Uomo universale” appeals to the imagination.
Scientists in those years had to be good at fiction, just because of the lack of photo and film resources. If one wants to make something visually clear, it must be drawn, drawn, and painted. This resulted, for example, with much better usage instructions than we sometimes find today.
Galileo Galileo (1564-1642), engineering and military compass (circa 1606)
Galileo described and signed his invention ‘Le operazioni del compasso geometrico e Militare’†
Maria Sibylla Merian He was an entomologist and very good as an illustrator/illustrator. She became more famous as an artist than a scientist. A good example is her book on caterpillars and butterflies in Suriname. Sixty inscriptions where creatures are depicted on the plants they eat. All inscriptions contain a scientific description.

All is well and good, but can the king also award a medal to contemporary scholars/artists? certainly…
heart of art
Felix Hess applies his background in physics to facilities dealing with nature, interaction, senses, and silence.
In Australia, Felix Hess was inspired to communicate with the American toad. He is Audio errors They interact with each other like American frogs. As soon as they notice an unfamiliar sound, they shut up.
Hess made some recordings of Frog Frog and now we can listen to the Frog Choir Concert.
That’s not inferior to Steve Reich, don’t you think?
