Philosopher Isaiah Berlin published an essay called,”The Hedgehog and the Fox” in it he expands on the notion attributed to the ancient Greek poet Archilochus, “the fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing”. He explains the difference between writers and thinkers that have contrasting views,(fox) macro/big picture and (hedgehog) micro/closely focused.
