Two talks by Alfred Schenkman
2— 'How to be an Expert'
In this talk, the speaker describes how he set out to study university education in Europe; how easy at first he found it to be an expert when he was not among experts, and how the more he learned the harder he found it to remain one. In twenty-five years, he hopes, he may be an expert again. But, as an American, he suggests that the conception of an expert is different in England.
