I love the Maverick Philosopher’s blog. His blog is a treasure trove of thoughtful articles on philosophy, politics, and the life of the mind. I highly recommend it.
So when I had a question about reading widely versus reading deeply, I could think of few people that I would rather ask than the Maverick Philosopher. And he responded to the email in a blog post.
Here is the post where he responded. He had some good advice. (Basically, he said that you need to read widely and read deeply. He gives more detail in the post, though.)
There was a follow-up post in which he included some comments another reader sent to him about reading deeply versus reading widely. You can read it here.
