division of work

"Division of work is not the only aspect of specialization. Specialization means the loss of direct, actual experience beyond the field of specialty and there, substitutes information for experience. But information means intellectualization and intellectualization--one-sidedness, incompleteness. Alfred North Whitehead comes to my aid here when he says: 'Effective knowledge is professionalized knowledge, supported by a restricted acquaintance with useful subjects subservient to it.'"
