Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World by David Epstein

  • Laura M. Harrison Ohio University

Abstract

If you are a person who values the broad knowledge afforded by a liberal arts education, you have probably experienced the challenge of articulating its value to the many naysayers who eschew the liberal arts in favor of a more “practical” education...I was stuck on this conundrum until I discovered David Epstein’s Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World.
