The Hedgehog and the Fox
“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.?
The Philosopher Isaiah Berlin, drawing?on?a line from the Ancient Greek poet Achilocus, wrote a famous essay in 1953 entitled The Hedgehog and the Fox.? The basic idea is that the fox has a variety of interests; the hedgehog has one stubborn idea.
On this blog, I follow my interest wherever it takes me (like a fox) while always writing in the service of The One Big Thing (like a hedgehog).
What‘s that One Big Thing? You?ll have to read to find out.
