Intersting fellow.

Ambroise-Paul-Toussaint-Jules Val�ry (French pronunciation: [p�"l valeÃÂi]; October 30, 1871 � July 20, 1945) was a French poet, essayist, and philosopher. His interests were sufficiently broad that he can be classified as a polymath. In addition to his poetry and fiction (drama and dialogues) and aphorisms on art, history, letters, music, and current events, he also wrote many misanthropic diatribes on human nature.

What is a polymath?

Just looked it up on Wikipedia and it petty much describes what is generally called a Renaissance man, one of many skills and lots of knowledge, I think this can, at times, be a loaded statement and a back-handed compliment, depending how one feels about the person it's applied to and their views

Thanks lilo, I read some of his bio and I'm not sure what I think of this fellow but I do think the word polymath is an interesting term to describe someone.
