Quotes by David Epstein  (?)

“We learn who we are in practice, not in theory.”
David Epstein, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

“You have people walking around with all the knowledge of humanity on their phone, but they have no idea how to integrate it. We don’t train people in thinking or reasoning.”
David Epstein, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

“Modern work demands knowledge transfer: the ability to apply knowledge to new situations and different domains. Our most fundamental thought processes have changed to accommodate increasing complexity and the need to derive new patterns rather than rely only on familiar ones. Our conceptual classification schemes provide a scaffolding for connecting knowledge, making it accessible and flexible.”
David Epstein, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World
