“Literature in physics class? Oh, you mean physics texts and texts from physics books!” “No literary texts. They exist, those passages in literature that are directly related to physics.” Contrary to schoolbooks, scientific facts are only incidental here and sometimes treated in a very imaginative way. For example, unsound physics are explained by magic. Physics becomes embedded into a context and introduced to support plots, adventures, and so on. This article intends to bring to light the possibilities of combining literature and physics in school lessons. In addition, the partial gap between natural science and humanities or social sciences will be addressed and attempted to be bridged.
