Wisdom: Object of Study or Basic Aim of Inquiry?,

In Michel Ferrari & N. Weststrate (eds.), The Scientific Study of Personal Wisdom. Springer (2012)
Abstract
We face severe global problems, many that we have inadvertently created ourselves. It is clear that there is an urgent need for more wisdom. One response is to improve knowledge about wisdom. This, I argue, is an inadequate response to the problems we face. Our global problems arise, in part, from a damagingly irrational kind of academic enterprise, devoted as it is to the pursuit of knowledge. We need to bring about a revolution in academic inquiry so that its basic aim becomes to seek and promote wisdom.
