This paper examines the status of the conflict between science and the humanities in the context of modern university studies, and, through an examination of historical and disciplinary voices, suggests that such conflicts are not only needless, but unfounded as well. I propose a radical reorientation of the disciplines under the singular aegis of human cognition, and postulate that radical interdisciplinarity would lead not a dissolution of speciality, but rather to marked improvement in human epistemology.
