For almost 100 years (since Wm James) the social sciences have ignored, suppressed, and neglected personal consciousness. For 24 centuries before that (in Western and Asian history) consciousness was at the very center of human concerns. In science today we are in a comeback, but the curriculum and the institutions are way behind. So students are the last ones to benefit from the huge upsurge in first-rate consciousness science from psychology, social psychology, and bioscience.
We’ve still got it backwards. There is no conflict between science and the humanities. I’m less sure of this one, but there may be no conflict between science and religion.
It’s high time to heal the split between the “Two Cultures.”
