Polymaths

On the Today programme this morning there was an article about Polymaths and where are they today?

One of the thoughts given was that with an education system so focused on getting people to specialise, we're no longer allowing these types to people to excel as they once would and that perhaps we should allow for a broader education for those more suited to it.

Wow, at last someone talks some sense. Shame it will never happen...

I guess there's also that there's so *much* to know, there are increasingly many branches of all science, etc...

Fully agree. Being a polymath in renaissance times must have been a damned sight easier, even I would qualify. There is so much more knowledge available now, even Jack of All Trades is impossible.
