A compelling investigation into one of our most coveted and cherished ideals, and the efforts of modern science to penetrate the mysterious nature of this timeless virtue.We all recognize wisdom, but defining it is more elusive. In this fascinating journey from philosophy to science, Stephen S. Hall gives us a dramatic history of wisdom, from its sudden emergence in four different locations (Greece, China, Israel, and India) in the fifth century B.C. to its modern manifestations in education, politics, and the workplace. We learn how wisdom became the provenance of philosophy and religion through its embodiment in individuals such as Buddha, Confucius, and Jesus; how it has consistently been a catalyst for social change; and how revelatory work in the last fifty years by psychologists, economists, and neuroscientists has begun to shed light on the biology of cognitive traits long associated with wisdom-and, in doing so, begun to suggest how we might cultivate it.Hall explores the neural mechanisms for wise decision making; the conflict between the emotional and cognitive parts of the brain; the development of compassion, humility, and empathy; the effect of adversity and the impact of early-life stress on the development of wisdom; and how we can learn to optimize our future choices and future selves.Hall's bracing exploration of the science of wisdom allows us to see this ancient virtue with fresh eyes, yet also makes clear that despite modern science behavioral sciences,biological sciences,biology,cognitive psychology,epistemology,health fitness and dieting,neuropsychology,philosophy,politics and social sciences,psychology and counseling Biology, Knopf

A fascinating investigation into one of our most coveted and cherished ideals--and the efforts of modern science to penetrate its mysterious nature. Everyone aspires to wisdom, and we can recognize people who possess it, but defining it is more problematic. Now--traversing philosophy, theology, and neurobiology--award-winning science writer Stephen S. Hall gives us a historical exploration of this ancient virtue: how the notion of wisdom emerged in Greece, China, India, and the Middle East during the fifth century B.C.E.; how it became the province of philosophy and religion; and how in the revelatory work of the last fifty years, science has taken the search for wisdom into the human brain. Relying on the latest research, Hall describes the neural mechanisms that have been pinpointed in the process of prudent decision making; the conflict between the feeling and thinking parts of the brain; the biology of compassion and social justice; the behavioral impact of adversity and uncertainty; and how we learn to strategize about future choices and future selves. His examination of these new insights not only allows us to reevaluate some of the earliest paradigms of wisdom--King Solomon, Confucius, Socrates, and Jesus--but also makes clear that despite the most powerful efforts of modern science, the essence of wisdom remains a tantalizing mystery.

[EAN: 9780307269102], Gebraucht, guter Zustand, [PU: Alfred A. Knopf], Philosophy|General, Psychology & Psychiatry|General, Science|Life Sciences|Biological Diversity, Though wisdom is an ideal many people strive to attain, few understand the meaning of the virtue or its colorful evolution.

Hall examines the dramatic history of wisdom, from its first arisings in Greece, China, Israel, and India in the fifth century B.C. to its current place in education, politics, and business. Hall then looks at the scientific aspects of wisdom, exploring the neural mechanisms for wise decision-making, the conflict between the emotional and cognitive parts of the brain, and more.
