The Arts and Sciences

Dr. Wriston is joined by August Heckscher, president of the Twentieth century Fund, and William P. Bundy, Assistant Secretary of Defense and coordinator of the President’s Commission on National Goals, for a discussion of a national plan for the arts and sciences. The chief question is that of finding support, particularly for the arts. Should artist be given subsidies? Why are there so few artists in a society that contains such a high proportion of men and women truly appreciative of the arts? The three panelists describe the kinds of education that can develop artistic or scientific abilities, and also comment on the role of women in the arts and sciences. They conclude by agreeing that much can be done to stimulate creative effort through private investment, universities and perhaps government support.
