About the eBook

The famed Nobel Literature prize winning Leo Tolstoy is the author of this book. "On the Significance of Science and Art" explores the idea of the approach of modern science in looking at life's questions. Tolstoy feels that, "The men of contemporary science are very fond of saying, triumphantly and confidently, "We investigate only facts," imagining that these words contain some meaning. It is impossible to investigate facts alone, because the facts which are subject to our investigation are innumerable. Before we proceed to investigate facts, we must have a theory on the foundation of which these or those facts can be inquired into, i.e., selected from the incalculable quantity."
