Walk Among the Scholars

Schools of Thought
1. Socialism
2. Classical
3. Pre-Raphaelite
4. School of Art
5. Darwinism
6. University of London
7. Peaceful Resistance
8. British Library

The walk among the scholars seemed a rather boring walk as far as sight seeing goes, but when I began thinking about all the studying and new ideas that originated in such concentration from these blocks, the lack of “sights” became nothing to me. I walked amazed and inspired by the studious endeavors of past and present students. Britain has held scholarly renown for quite some time and it is no wonder considering the works of Newton, Darwin, Rossetti, and Dickens which cover the bases of human ingenuity in science and art. The pictures and captions listed above are only a sample of the scholarly work in that neighborhood and an even smaller sample of London’s contributions to science and art. This semester, I’ve been walking in the footsteps of giants.
