"I'm a scientist by training and generally believe that both are critical - theory and practice. From that point of view - by example - let's take engineers (practitioners primarily) and let's say physicists (theorists) bring new ideas and things into the world. But, they need each other - even if they don't know it."
Very good point, easily forgotten by many.
