Abstract

The evolution of a highly complex hierarchy of disciplinary specializations has been one of the major characteristics of the history of science. The ancient scientist/philosopher such as Aristotle, who was able to comprehend almost all knowledge available in his time, has gradually been replaced by generations of scientists with ever-increasing depth of knowledge and narrowness of interest and competence.
