Rebuilding the Polymath By Steven Spalding & James Gibson
Paperback: $9.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a Manifesto. A manifesto that looks back and looks forward, back to the world of the robber barons and the polymaths, to creative geniuses whose idle speculations gave us everything from... More > Calculus to the lightning rod, to people who, through their ability to think broadly and move seamlessly among disparate fields built the foundations on which much of our civilization sits.

From all this looking it seeks to draw a conclusion, that in giving up one we have severely hindered the other -- that in creating a world where specialization and concentration in education, in work, and in thinking has utterly obliterated the sort of broad minded tinkering and ethic of learning that helped build our society, we have begun to undermine innovation itself.< Less

More > behavior of leaders and those who follow the leaders. Leaders may behave badly, indeed very badly, abuse their power and act without any concern for those who depend on the leader. These stories of betrayal of trust, manifestation of greed, and actions in flagrant selfinterest are reminders of the grave responsibilities of leadership. They are warnings of the traps of leadership and the persuasions of naked power. Societies have long worked to develop rules of behavior that prevent such fall-out. Yet as these stories collected in East-Africa remind us, there is still a long way to go before we can trust leaders to behave in a civilized manner. Indeed, perhaps we need to know these stories to prevent our leaders from falling into the destructive temptation of acting out their raw impulses.< Less
