Center for Practical Wisdom

Wisdom is needed! It is the mission of the Center for Practical Wisdom to deepen the scientific understanding of wisdom and its role in the decisions and choices that affect everyday life. They connect scientists, scholars, educators, and students to initiate wisdom research & disseminate findings to the public.

“Wisdom was once regarded as a subject worthy of rigorous scholarly inquiry in order to understand its nature and benefits. It is difficult to imagine a subject more central to the highest aspirations of being human. The study of wisdom holds great promise for shedding light on and opening up new insights for human flourishing.
As part of the Center for Practical Wisdom, the website features the latest news and publications on wisdom science, and encourages interdisciplinary discussions about how wisdom can play a role in the professions and in public life.”
