A more balanced, cosmic, perspective on rationality and emotionality is needed - which was the view of many aspects of Classical-Medieval thought. They gave considerable prominence to intellectual generalists, as opposed to specialists like our era.
I wish to add a statement made by Major General J.F.C. Fuller which is of relevance to this topic:
"The more mechanical become the weapons with which we fight, the less mechanical must be the spirit which controls them."
Although speaking from a military perspective, it still rings true in social matters as a whole.
