    Abstract

    Since the first half of the nineteenth century there has been a growing divergence within universities between the studies of the liberal arts and those of the natural sciences, technology and engineering. This has arisen because of the rapid developments in these latter areas and their perceived need for specialisation and presumed lesser importance of liberal arts subjects. In this context the term liberal is generally understood to mean freedom to range over a broad range of knowledge, without being constrained to serve any particular application area, or even purpose.
