My research is the bottom and I need help answering the question in the bottom two lines.
When I think of the term Renaissance man, the words “Jack of all Trades” comes to my mind. What that means to me is a man or woman who has knowledge of many subjects such as art, language, math, and science. I also think of someone who strives to be the best that they can be, in addition to having the knowledge of different aspects of academics. A Renaissance man is also one who knows themselves and continues to improve oneself, either with knowledge or through society.
While researching a person from modern times who could be considered a Renaissance man, I found a couple of choices such as Brad Pitt and Justin Timberlake. Brad Pitt is a talented actor and loves architecture and design. Justin Timberlake is a musician, singer, actor, clothing designer, producer, writer, and golfer.
A man I feel is more deserving of the title of Renaissance man is Thomas Jefferson. He was an architect, author, lawyer, musician, botanist, inventor, and philosopher.
