In my opinion, writers, artists, scientists, engineers are all contributing great work to society. I think it’s not fair to compare them as one or the other, because they are all doing very different things for the world, but are all connected as well. Science and art are very important for culture and humanity, but without writing there would be no science, art, or engineering. There would be no written communication in any way. Without science, however, there would be no technology or human advancement. Abstract and concrete fields and concepts both function together and many people are very good at one or the other therefore there’s no way that one can be more important. Water and food are both very different, but you need both of them equally to survive.
