This August, a select group of the world’s leading behavioural scientists gathered in Chicago for the Center for Practical Wisdom Research Forum 2017. Their task? To tackle some very ancient questions with some very modern tools. What is wisdom? Can it be measured? And critically, how do we develop it?
EBW went to Chicago with microphone it hand, to find answers to these questions – to pick the brains of these wise experts, and to hit the city streets to learn what the people of Chicago have to tell us about living wisely in the modern world.
