I recently read a post which stated that the days of the polymath are numbered. A polymath (Greek: πολυμαθής, polymathēs) is a person of wide knowledge or learning, one whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas.
But this definition applies to everyone today, right?
Politics, world affairs, human rights, economics, stock markets, business, productivity, motivation, solving crime – everyone knows about everything. Is the polymath really dying?
