'…the art of medidne is the skilled application of medical science. In this sense, the art of medicine is no different from the art of engineering or architecture or any other applied science in which a large body of knowledge must be applied to everyday problems. Some engineers and architects are better than others: they are better 'artists'. …Clearly, it does little good for medical science and technology to make dramatic advances if these advances are going to be applied inefficiently and incorrectly.'
S. Schwartz and T. Griffin, 1986
Science may be described as the art of systematic oversimplification
