'Each profession makes progress, but it is progress in its own groove. Now
to be mentally in a groove is to live in contemplating a set of
abstractions. The groove prevents straying across country, and the
abstraction abstracts from something to which no further attention is
paid, but there is no groove of abstractions which is adequate for the
comprehension of human life. Thus in the modern world, the celibacy of the
mediaeval learned class has been replaced by a celibacy of the intellect
which is divorced from the concrete contemplation of the complete facts.'

A.N. Whitehead
