  • About this book

Wisdom has been sought since antiquity as an intellectual virtue associated with living a good life, but only recently has scientific evidence been gathered about it.  Wisdom develops over the lifespan, and many suggestions exist about how it can be taught.  This SpringerBrief in Education will examine the history and scientific evidence surrounding the development of wisdom, and about how it can be taught or fostered.  We also situate our essay in the context of existing programs to promote character education, claiming that character education that ignores teaching for wisdom is necessarily incomplete. ​
