Perhaps the greatest lesson we could teach our students from this site, is just how diversified the interestes of DaVinci were. He was a life-long learner, a quality we hope to see develop in our students. He did not focus on one “career” but dabbled in a broad array of interests. This is, I think, what we are trying to achieve with a liberal arts education, but it is mostly lost on the students, who seem to be very career-minded these days.
Back to the topic at hand. There are eight trails that you can follow through DaVinci’s work:
- The body of earth
- The body of man
- Imagination and Invention
- Remaking Nature
- Forces of Nature
- The Natural World
- Light and Vision
- Rule of Mathematics
Guess where I started?
