Dialectics and wisdom

In Bertell Ollman & Tony Smith (eds.), Science and Society. Palgrave Macmillan 483 - 496 (2008)
Seeing further and deeper, grasping the "big picture," being able to integrate one's thinking with one's emotions, and good timing, knowing when to act and when not to, have always been highly valued by our species. In this essay, the different forms taken by wisdom across the ages are related to the history of class struggle and the accompanying development of dialectical thinking. With its broad scientific grasp of reality, dialectical materialism makes it possible for more people to attain higher levels of wisdom than ever before
