During Peter Drucker's lecture regarding knowledge work and knowledge workers, he begins by taking questions from the class that are pertinent to the course. The first student asks Drucker about an article in “Inc.” magazine in which Drucker stated he chooses a new discipline to study every year. The student asks Drucker how he chooses a discipline to study and how he approaches his studies. During his answer, Drucker discusses his latest book, “Drucker on Asia” which is a dialogue with a Japanese business leader, Isao Nakauchi, who built what was then the largest food retailer in Japan. Drucker goes on to describe himself as a historian and explains that he has always had an interest in institutions and the way in which individuals and institutions interact. He also discusses his interest in oriental art and the differences between Japanese and Chinese art. From there he talks about bilingual children and the ability to learn new languages throughout adulthood. Later in the interview, Drucker discusses Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace and the publishing of the “Origins of Species” explaining that Wallace actually developed the theory of evolution before Darwin, but Darwin was first to publish it.
