This chapter demonstrates that G.W. Leibniz and Michal Polanyi’s creative work in multiple fields of attention may serve a twenty first century in need of scholars willing to put daring and speculative imaginative inter–disciplinary risks in play. Such a cultural development would activate a general and cross–cultural sensibility that may salvage knowledge work, which is often predicated on property and power, for instead intellectual work that would serve the production of multiple truths that may enliven the world and inspire it.
Keywords general cross-cultural sensibility   hope, imagination, intersubjectivized, knowledge work, polymathic, Sloterdijk, society of scholars, Stiegler, twenty-first century
