ROBINSON CRUSOE. ELIZABETHAN AGE. From the creators of SparkNotes, something better. BLAKE. The Daffodils - Poem (illustrated) - by William Wordsworth. Future - Why science needs imagination and beauty. Albert Einstein famously said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” They’re both important, says physicist and Nobel Prize recipient Frank Wilczek, but knowledge without imagination is barren. Take his subject of theoretical physics. As Wilczek says a lot of what you do is to try to understand Mother Nature’s mind and her sense of beauty to see how the laws of physics could be more beautiful. Not many people truly appreciate what happened in physics in the last part of the 20th Century.

We understood at a level whose profundity would be difficult to exaggerate what matter is. We really have the equations for the different fundamental building blocks of matter – the different particles have mathematical characterisations that are precise and elegant. They have no secrets, in principle we have the equations. The bad news, however, is we are not so good at solving them. The questions we are now able to ask are so compelling, so extraordinary. Daffodils Song (Wordsworth's poem) It's Alive!
