With all my firm belief in the renaissance man and the virtue of multi-facetedness, I am forced to ask myself with increased frequency, especially with the thesis year slowly creeping close: is it Really Possible to stay agent in our time without diving into some very specific topic? Why do we all have to submit to the frame? Well, if it exists, and the society works within it, there must be a good reason for that, right? But still, if I don’t want to – as a human being and as a individual spark of intellect – do I have to be bent and twisted to fit into a certain cell, to suit a certain line on a conveyor, do I have to give up what I actually believe in – my ability to be interested in everything and and human right to¬†allow myself to be so?
