a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas – Wikipedia
I’m not saying I’m an expert. But I rock in Jeopardy, so that should say something.
However, it’s not about being smart. The Renaissance is a time that considered humans “empowered, limitless in their capacities for development, and led to the notion that people should embrace all knowledge and develop their capacities as fully as possible.” – Wikipedia, again. I strongly believe that this needs to be your attitude towards life in order to even consider it life. Be curious, be adventurous, be inquisitive, and live.
The Renaissance Man blog follows my path to becoming a Renaissance Man, which I hope will inspire others to accept the challenge of finding enlightenment.
