Welcome to Polymathing by me, Alexander Boswell. I’m a full-time wordsmith, marketer and serial ultra-learner.

This newsletter will explore what it means to be a polymath, what life looks like for a polymath and whether or not anyone (cough cough, me) can achieve ‘Polymath’ status!

For those who don’t know, a polymath is as follows:



  1. a person of wide knowledge or learning.

    "a Renaissance polymath"

My goal in life is to be one of such ‘wide knowledge and learning’.

To achieve that status I’ll be deep-diving into ultra learning projects on my journey to polymathy as well as looking out for established polymaths - delving into their lives and what we can learn from them.
