From a medical and human perspective, there are three great physicians, which are Dr. Albert Schweitzer, Sir William Osler and Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara. As common aspects, they had the Christianity circumstances and the experiences with learning art, natural science and medicine. They estimated that medicine has to include the aspects of science and art in certain proportionality. Compared differences between science and art would be as follows: disease vs illness, case vs patient, cure vs care, evidence-based vs narrative-based. Hinohara developed music therapy that combines science and art. This article is expected to become some reference in the future.
