Learning from Leonardo

For example, his studies of the movement of water informed his ideas about how landscapes are shaped, how sap rises in plants, how air moves over a birds wing, and how blood flows in the human body. His observations of nature enhanced his art, his drawings were integral to his scientific studies, and he brought art and science together in his extraordinarily beautiful and elegant mechanical and architectural designs. Obviously, we cant all be geniuses on the scale of Leonardo da Vinci. But by exploring the mind of the preeminent Renaissance genius, we can gain profound insights into how best to addr
