! “Talk to schoolmasters, and they say that our intense specialisation, like nothing else on earth, is dictated by the Oxford and Cambridge scholarship examinations” (Snow 19). I found this to be a very interesting claim. I would have figured that specialization would come from our economy, not from a long standing academic institution.

? How has specialization in academia changed and stayed the same since this lecture was given given the fact that major scientific discoveries have been made in the last sixty years?
