The comments of Kee-Sam Jeong et, al. (as cited by Eliza Yingzi Du et, al. 2013, p184) in respect to Biotechnologies are worth reviewing.
"The development of scientific technology in the 20th century has increasingly made sciences more and more specialised. The more science became specialised, technology became more advanced but at the price of limited communication with other fields. The pursuit of depth has come to face a technological limit whereby a single technology cannot solve all the problems in the world and therefore interdisciplinary cooperation with other fields has become inevitable."
