Principles of education (教育原理)

Traditional classification of sciences in Japan
Arts and sciences

Arts (文系, 人文系)
Sciences (理系)

the classification came from old-education-system of high school before WWII

the culture (elegance in arts and integrity in sciences) remained even after WWII

arts ← pros and cons of mathematics → sciences
