I also observe that with programming, one of the most important basic skills is pattern recognition.

pattern recognition..

That is why mechanics sometimes seem so taciturn and withdrawn when performing tests. They donít like it when you talk to them because they are concentrating on mental images, hierarchies, and not really looking at you or the physical motorcycle at all. They are using the experiment as part of a program to expand their hierarchy of knowledge of the faulty motorcycle and compare it to the correct hierarchy in their mind. They are looking at underlying form.

Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Following Pirsig's chautauqua we are told that, perhaps, mixing gestalt and classical point view can bring quality in our lifes.

So even if I almost agree with your point of view about education (flexibility in orientation and valutation), is not also true that a wider look at the world make also the pattern recognition approach wiser? Who buy functional but ugly shoes?

I'm definetively with Pirsig for an humanistic aptitude.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
