How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci ( book short notes)


Sayush, author of The Dead Poets Socielty blog (yes, that’s the correct spelling) wrote a great book review for How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci. Most excellent is a recap of the seven Da Vincian Principles. These principles are drawn from an intensive study of the man and his methods. The Seven Principles discussed are:

1. Curiosita: An insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.

2. Dimostrazione: A commitment to test knowledge through experience, persistence, and willingness to learn from mistakes.

3. Sensazione: The continual refinement of the senses, especially sight, as the means to enliven experience.

4. Sfumato: A willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty.

5. Arte/Scienza: The development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination. “Whole-brain” thinking.

6. Corporalita: The cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise.

7. Connessione: A recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena. Systems thinking.
