Duizend en eenige hoofdstukken over Specialiteiten (A thousand chapters and then some on specialities). Manuscript, 1871
'De roeping van de mens is Mens te zyn (The call of humans is to be Human)', the words that end this book, is Multatuli’s appeal against ‘specialities’ (specialists). Multatuli’s ‘specialties’ are those who cut themselves off from issues that are outside their own discipline and, by doing so, deny themselves all rights to interfere in matters of public interest.
