“WISDOM: The Highest Aim of Life and Higher Education” is a transcription and slides of a “Thomas P. Johnson Distiguished Visiting Scholar” talk given by Copthorne Macdonald at Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida. In this talk, he covers the following points: personal wisdom, socio-cultural wisdom, and role of higher education in development of both of these.
Hi! This blog is dedicated to collecting interesting research on wisdom and some research within interdisciplinary sciences. I digg out blog posts, articles, videos, news, etc, and post links with short descriptions.
I work for project initiated by the University of Chicago – Defining Wisdom. This project consists of 24 smaller funded academic projects aimed at exploring the meaning of “wisdom” from the perspective of different disciplines.
I appreciate any comments, suggestions, or feedback.
