Abstract

Today’s complex society is increasingly dependent on experts — civil engineers, surgeons, taxation lawyers, computer programmers, economists, and many others. These experts are usually defined by their credentials and their solidarity with mainstream professional bodies. Those who oppose them often do not have the same credibility, although they may have the same levels of knowledge and experience.
