Topic: no field of study can enhance significantly unless outsiders bring their knowledge & experience to that field of study.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Humans have constantly evolved since time immemorial, both physically and intellectually. Their knowledge has diversified and branched into a multitude of study fields. While each field is different from one another in both concentration and approach, there is an opinion that no field of study can remarkably advance without the inclusion of outsider contribution. I partially concur with such an opinion. While the application of science to other fields is observable, science has receive marginal external contribution.
In the modern world, it is blatant that scientific inventions are related to all spheres of life. Firstly, the rise of computers has digitalized every morsel of information, making the operation of labor tasks less demanding and more efficacious. For example, accountancy have transformed from paper and mechanical calculators to automatic softwares processing immeasurable information in a short period of time. Moreover, scientific discoveries become the inspiration or even an integral part of several forms of art. Astronomical observations have become the main theme of several masterworks such as the Roden Crater. Music sheets operate based on mathematic calculations. Were it not for the intervention of science, art would become monotonous, unimaginative and shortsighted.
Contrariwise, science advance predominantly by itself and do not rest on any external field. Outsiders may freely talk about subjects of science, but since they do not delve into the discipline, nonspecialist discussions lack any outcome that can redound to the progress of science. Moreover, science is intrinsically prohibitive. The audience of scientific meetings are scientists themselves, since the specialization required makes it impossible for laymen to comprehend. Last but not least, unlike art which is open to numerous interpretations and evaluation, science is absolute, consisting of only the right and the wrong, the theories and the experimentation. Hence applying outsider perception into scientific works would be faulty and even detrimental.
All in all, while outsider knowledge can greatly benefit several areas of study, it bears no relation to the field of science. Should professionals in spheres like art, business, etc. they should synergize with external knowledge to help expand the view on their subject and reap desirable results.
