Why Hedgehog?

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.
