Pythagoras .. is one possible source for the term ‘philosophy’ – the love of wisdom (philo–sophia). For Pythagoras, numbers were an underlying feature of reality, mysticism, the harmonic balance of opposites, and wisdom itself. Building on some of Pythagoras’ ideas, Plato and his best student Aristotle considered wisdom an essential human virtue – ‘a habit of mind in harmony with reason and the order of nature’, ..key element on the path to achieving a good life, a path that required balance and moderation between extremes
Vivian Clayton. .aimed to explore the characteristics a group of 83 lay Americans associated with a wise person, and arrived at three commonly held elements: cognition, reflection and compassion
Our chief goal was to explore the possibility of a scientific consensus on the psychological characteristics of wisdom and best practices for its measurement. We hoped to take down wisdom from its mystical pedestal and find a more pragmatic, concrete footing that would work not just for sages and fictional characters, but also for regular humans.
our task force agreed that moral grounding was the first foundational pillar of the common wisdom model in empirical sciences.. The second foundational pillar we arrived at was meta-cognition – the overarching mental processes that guide our thoughts.
Meta-cognition without moral aspirations would mark a cunning sociopath rather than a wise person.
Our task force found that moral aspirations and meta-cognition provide a bridge across a whole range of philosophical positions and psychological theories. .. if that is the case, it is now finally possible to measure these building blocks systematically. It is also possible to figure out how to cultivate them
Solomon showed great wisdom in other people’s problems, but great folly in his personal ones
These studies reveal a certain irony: in those situations where we might care the most about behaving wisely, we’re least likely to do so. Is there a way to use evidence-based insights to counter this tendency?
Can there be artificial wisdom (and how would it be distinct from artificial intelligence)? .. In such times, wisdom appears more needed than ever before. By deconstructing it, scientists can now turn an eye toward nurturing and sustaining wisdom in challenging times
i guess i feel like intellect ness.. is killing us.. from way back when.. ever.. and all the attempts to attain it (wisdom or whatever you call it) are counter to its essence.. it’s like.. if we’re trying to get/measure/instill it.. that’s a red flag we won’t (get it)
let’s let go.. and just listen for that
imagine if we just focused on listening to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..
