In an observation that is now so clichéd, you won’t be able to believe how much I hate myself for repeating it, the ancient Greek poet Archilochus distinguished between the fox, who ‘knows many things’, and the hedgehog, who ‘knows one big thing’. (The philosopher Isaiah Berlin borrowed the distinction to distinguish between writers (‘hedgehogs’) who attempt to explain the world in terms of one big idea, and writers (‘foxes’) who refuse to view the world in such simplistic terms.)
I'm benighted about hedgehogs. Do they truly know just one big thing?
