Unreasonable Man

George Bernard Shaw said that all progress depends on the unreasonable man. Do you agree. The full quote is on John Strock’s blog http://servetolead.org/george-bernard-shaw-all-progress-depends-on-unreasonable-man/#comment-822 .

My question is where does one draw the line between the unreasonable man who changes the world and the madman who changes nothing?

History is full of unreasonable men who changed the world. Albert Einstein was unreasonable because he challenged all the cherished beliefs about the cosmos that all reasonable men held.

Henry Ford was an unreasonable man who believed that he could mass produce a cheap automobile that the common man could afford. All his friends and relatives said he was wasting his time.

Yet we all know people who are detached from reality and are unreasonable. They refuse to adapt to the world as they find it. Some do change the world, but many die unknown, having changed nothing.

How do we know where that line is? Is it enough to be unreasonable? What more is required?
