Albert O. Hirschman

“The idea of trespassing is basic to my thinking. Attempts to confine me to a specific area make me unhappy. When it seems that an idea can be verified in another field, then I am happy to venture in this direction. I believe this is a simple and useful way of discovering 'related' topics.”Remark by Albert Hirschman in a 1993 autobiographical interview with Carmine Donzelli
