He showed her the drawings she’d made - one each of a hand, a chair, and a woman’s face. Then he showed her some of his other students’ drawings from the class. “Jenny, you’ve got something here. I know you don’t want to continue with this particular class, but I don’t want you to give up on art. I want you to sign up for another course. How about drawing?” He stated this in a...

Academically, I have always enjoyed approaching complex problems from a broad perspective, rather than from the narrow confines of a single discipline.
