Charles Percy Snow, Baron Snow CBE (15 October 1905–1 July 1980) was an English physicist and novelist, who also served several important positions in the UK government. He is perhaps best known for a series of novels known collectively as Strangers and Brothers, and for “The Two Cultures”, a 1959 lecture in which he laments the gulf between scientists and “literary intellectuals”. More on C.P. Snow.
