Ours is an age of specialization. Indeed, if it were not, many of the achievements of the human race would simply not have come about. In most fields of human endeavourscience, technology, art, recreationprogress is made by the intelligent division of labour and by concentrating on doing a few things superlatively well. If the specialist is not the hero of our times, he is at least its symbol. He claims the privileges of the expertthat those who do not have his expertise should acknowledge it, accept it, and, within his field, subordinate their own judgment to his.
