Demise of the cultivated doctor

А. П. Чехов

А. П. Чехов

If no one, writes Dalrymple, is broadly educated or cultivated,

that is the end of broad education and cultivation itself. We will be reduced to a society of technocrats, each absorbed in his own narrow specialism.

It is not, he says, a society

to which I look forward. Apart from anything else, some among us will be specialists in the exercise of power, against whom the rest of us will be defenceless.
