When looking at any recent news story, it’s hard not to agree that as a society, we seem to be lacking an answer to that question. Or, at least a consensus on what it is.
How would you define wisdom? Of course the better question to ask is how should we define it? Before we ‘skip to the answer’ it is probably best to spend a little time wrestling with it.
So, here’s your opportunity. But let me ask again, like this: if you say someone is wise, what do you mean? What is it that they say, or have, or know that would give you reason to call them wise?
To give you a running start, when asked to define wisdom Google gives us: “the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment.” Yes? No? Kind of? Add your corrections or contributions below in the comments.
