The Scientific Stream as per M.S. Knowles is the factual stream of cognition that undergirds life endeavors with knowledge, function and form. The Artistic Stream is founded in intuition and experience and provides the inspiration for activities and life choices. They are important because life activity and choices require the intuitive part of knowing as well as the factual part of knowing in order for people to find success in life and learning.
