Why the Renaissance man – and woman – is making a comeback

Standard

***Personal Development Series: Developing Multiple Strengths***

          The world that is emerging, whether we like it or not, requires the development of a broader range of interests and expertise. We need to go back and study the great figures of the Renaissance to understand this better. I have watched this movement toward crossing and melding the traditional disciplines and the emergence of new “interdisciplines” since my work in higher education in the 1970s. The future lies in depth plus breadth and a continual transformation of how we work and live in the world. This is a great essay to remind you to broaden your way in the world.

            Farnham Street’s Brain Food is one of the very thoughtful blogs I turn to for interesting approaches to personal development. I have posted from his mental models series before, but this post is where you should begin if you are serious about using mental models in your daily life. All of us use them, but we are often not fully aware that we are doing this. This is the best introduction to mental models I have found. Adapt the Farnham Street Latticework of Mental Models in your life.
