Stephen S. Hall
explores the history of wisdom and its journey from philosophy to science. He looks at how wisdom became one of our most cherished ideals, and at the efforts of modern science to penetrate the mysterious nature of it. In Wisdom: From Philosophy to Neuroscience
he reveals how wisdom became the provenance of philosophy and religion, how it has been a catalyst for social change, and how, in the last fifty years, psychologists, economists, and neuroscientists have begun to shed light on the biology wisdom.
