The Copenhagen Intellectual History Seminar

04 December 2014 kl. 14:15

Wisdom is a multifaceted concept with various meanings in philosophy, theology, literature, religion, the arts and psychology. As such, wisdom denotes an enormous field. In a series of talks we focus not on the object of wisdom, but on the agents who seek, possess or lose wisdom. Although the wise might be mostly an ideal, we still find him or her depicted in various ways.
What does it imply to be wise? Is the wise person a knowledgeable or an experienced person? How can wisdom be acquired? Can it be taught? Can it be lost? Can it be transformed? Can it transform the agent him or herself...
