“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing”( Greek poet Archilochus)

The late philosopher Isiah Berlin popularised the fox and the hedgehog concept in his 1953 essay, The Hedgehog and the Fox.

The foxes have a broad knowledge of many things.

The hedgehogs have a deep knowledge of one domain or specialty.
