The Hedgehog and the Fox
A talk of c. 20 minutes, illustrated with images and sound recordings. It takes its title from Berlin’s famous 1953 essay on Tolstoy’s view of history, which playfully uses the metaphor of the fox ‘who knows many things’, and the hedgehog ‘who knows one big thing’, to suggest that Tolstoy was a fox who wanted to be a hedgehog. This talk takes Berlin’s literary trope and applies it to his own career, arguing that Berlin was a fox, a multidisciplinary polymath who, through his overriding focus on liberty, became a hedgehog. Suitable for university students and for advanced sixth formers, but also, in a simplified form, for secondary school students.
