‘Evidence-based wisdom’ is a term for scientifically determined knowledge about the psychological construct of ‘Wisdom’.
In the last 30 years or so, wisdom has made its way into science departments across the globe, particularly in Germany, the United States and Canada. Psychologists are finding that societies do share an agreed understanding and conception of wisdom. I will be writing about this emerging field of wisdom research. This will involve sharing and translating scientific papers as they emerge from the labs. I will also be sharing and developing tools which nurture evidence-based wisdom in individuals.
My perspective is that wisdom deals with ‘mastering the human experience’ and it is too important and too interesting to leave to chance. My working definition of wisdom is ‘the understanding and action that leads to optimal life experience’.
If you are interested in what science is now able to tell us about this ‘peak state of human development’, then this blog is for you. I hope that you find the blog useful in acquiring wisdom.
