    Imho, Mike gives a good answer. If one must choose, begin with broad, diagnostic knowledge (fox knows many things), and continue to specialize (hedgehog knows but one).

    If one is in it for rewards, such as money, the specialist makes more. However, if the specialty is not in demand, e.g. ethnic studies, then the market value is primarily for instructors of same to students, not otherwise in the market.

    If the specialty is not in demand, and the philosopher is ahead of her time re presenting answers to developing problems, then as a voice crying in the wilderness, e.g. a van Gogh.

    Let's apply your question to doctors. One is a diagnostician who can detect many different latent illnesses. Once an illness is suggested, the patient is handed over to a specialist who treats that disease but who maybe wouldn't be able to diagnose another condition.

    Yes because knowledge is power.
