What is your BIGGEST TAKEAWAY (BIGGEST LEARNING) from our Revolutionary Thinker’s Project?
Even with the knowledge and how great the discovery was, it can be quite hard to find the past of a great revolutionary thinker. My revolutionary thinker had discovered something very important to humankind today, yet when researching about him it was quite hard to learn about him. I learned that we take this discovery for granted, and we don’t seem too give William Harvey the man who had discovered blood circulation enough credit. There are many more great revolutionary thinkers that never really get the credit they deserve, and I think we owe too them to give it to them.
