Science and Poetry

	A couple of years ago I wrote a little essay called Science and
Poetry, it was at Brown University (Rhode Island, U.S.A.), a quite good
and beautiful place.
	My idea was that there something common to science and poetry,
a sort of intuition of ideas before writing or experiment them. This
idea is not new, of course, there're marvellous essays about the rela-
tion between science and art (in general). And several months later I
discovered Max Delbr|ck (one of the top ten molecular biologoists, even
when he wasn't educated as one) wrote a similar essay with the same 
tittle. Please, if anyone knows how to obtain it, please I would appre-
ciate very much the information.

	But anyway, the reason for this post is that I'd like to know
scientists (I'm a molecular biologist and also work in electrophysiolo-
gy of ion channels) interestied on poetry and literature (in general)
just for the pleasure of talking about books. 
	When you share things, you rediscover them and, of course, re-
enjoy them.

	Is anybody having an oppinion about the relation between scien-
ce and poetry?.

	Bye ...
