On an interesting aside, techne is probably most accurately translated as “craft” and also means “art” and “profession”. There are no different words for these terms in Greek. Even though some other words are used for “profession”, it is only techne which refers to the profession as the whole of knowledge and skills required by a specific job.

What’s noteworthy is how therefore in ancient Greek, someone’s job is also his art, and vice versa.

Makeshifts last the longest.
