Abstract: 
This paper positions design as the process through which the arts, sciences and technologies can be linked to create a viable first world economy. Advancing a thesis which sees design as both an innate ability crucial to everyday living as well as a developmental process in need of specialist teaching the author criticises practices which seek to maintain archaic and spurious distinctions between disciplines. Artists, designers and teachers are encouraged to stop dividing amongst themselves as a group and to stop dividing against the technologies and the sciences. It is asserted that a society that wants to stress its cultural and economic imperatives and wants this attitude to be nurtured in it education system will need to see that these imperatives are part of a holistic enterprise.
