* Played with during a recent ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' arc where Spider-Man, having temporarily lost his spider-senses, agreed to let Shang Chi train him in martial arts to compensate. Spider-Man was able to grasp the scientific aspects of Shang Chi's teaching, but struggled a bit with the philosophical aspects.
-->'''Spider-Man''': I think I've got this. It's mass, acceleration, leverage and a knowledge of human biology. That's science, and I'm great at science.\\
'''Shang Chi''': No, Spider-Man, it is so much more. This is no mere application of brute force. It is an art, and an expression of the self.\\
'''Spider-Man''': What if most of myself is science?

* The creators of ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'' say they frequently receive comments saying that by analyzing games they are sucking the fun out of them. Their response can be found [[http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/art-is-not-the-opposite-of-fun here]].

* ''HomoFaber'', the well-known novel by Max Frisch, has exactly this type of guy as the protagonist-narrator.

* Some people feel like watching behind the scenes features and director's commentary on movies dismantles the magic and ruins the scenes that blew them away by showing how exactly they were achieved. Others delight in learning the stories behind the stories and the sheer craftsmanship (especially in the age of realistically achieved practical effects) involved in weaving the illusions.

* Played with in Film/ShortCircuit. Toward the end of the film, Newton is trying to figure out if Number 5 has really "come alive." He makes a Rorshcach blot with paper and tomato soup, trying to see if Number 5 sees past the scientific to see the marigolds:
-->'''Newton Crosby''': Number 5, What do you make of this?
-->'''Number 5''': Hmmm... Wood pulp, plant - vegetable - tomato, water, salt, monosodium glutamate...
-->'''Newton Crosby''': (Disappointed) Okay, thank you. Now you're talking like a robot.
-->({{Beat}})
-->'''Number 5''': ...and resemble - look like - butterfly, bird, maple leaf!

* A recuring theme in ''Series/MastersOfSex''. The scientific study about human sexual interation gets regularly accused of this, to which Bill masterfully replies why love is out of any "ecuation" with a poetical analogy about Newtonian dynamics and Einstein's. "Love is the very fabric of it all, the curvature of our desire."

* ''Series/{{Fringe}}'': Variant. Alistair Peck finds the idea of a scientist believing in God to be ridiculous, but he has a great deal of faith in the miracles science can produce.
-->'''Alistair:''' Walter, God is science. God is polio and flu vaccines and M.R.I. machines, and artificial hearts. If you are a man of science, then that's the only faith we need.

* Rarely explicitly stated, but in ''BigBangTheory'', the {{Nerd}}s - even Sheldon on occasion - are amazed at the beauty and wonder that exists around them and quickly point out that there's amazing things that you wouldn't even know existed without the aid of science - Astronomy appears to be their poison of choice.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'': N accuses Professor Juniper of "arbitrarily measuring and categorizing Pokemon without appreciating them". If you were reading Juniper's intro speech in the game's prologue, [[GenkiGirl you'd know this isn't the case]].

If you were reading Juniper's intro speech in the game's prologue, [[GenkiGirl you'd know this isn't the case]]. It's a mite hypocritical of N when he seems to view everything in terms of equations and formulas himself, even as it's clear that he has a deep appreciation for Pokemon.
