Who’s missing in modern academia: solitary geniuses or something much more significant?

Who’s missing in modern academia: solitary geniuses or something much more significant? | Open Access, Useful Journals, General Tech&Ed | Scoop.it
Rebekah Higgitt: Peter Higgs’s negative comments on modern academia have received much interest, in part because they idealise the idea of the scientific researcher as solitary genius. But there are other, more significant, voices missing.
NomadWarMachine's insight:

Those who really were excluded were not solitary geniuses who could not find sufficient time for thinking, but those who were, as a result of class, geography, race or gender, never likely to have the opportunity to begin an education, let alone contribute to the established scientific societies and journals. And this affected the science that was done: ample research shows how the norms, assumptions and interests of elites have shaped supposedly value-free science.
