This Senior Honors Thesis evolved from a personal fascination with the intersection of art and science both in drama and on a grander theoretical scale. It is a three-part investigation with each part written in different voice with a different intention. The first is a short personal introduction offering insight to the genesis of the project. This is followed by a comparative dramaturgical analysis of two science plays, Bertolt Brecht's GALILEO and Michael Frayn's COPENHAGEN, examining the role of science in drama. The final component is a philosophical dialogue on the model of Brecht's MESSINGKAUF DIALOGUES which articulates larger philosophical questions in an examination of the similarities and differences between science and art.
