This chapter returns to the thesis that was offered in the Introduction, and asks to what extent it has provided a tentative explanation as to why the scientists who feature in this book wrote poetry. For all of these scientists, their ability to embrace both science and poetry gave them an aptitude to better consider the scale of what they sought to achieve. Yet despite their numerous successes in both fields, this chapter concludes that one thing that unites all of the poetic scientists in this book is that at various points in their lives, external forces wanted them to choose between either science or poetry. The chapter finishes by considering meaningful interdisciplinary collaborations between poetry and science and the role that both can play in making sense of the world in which we live.
