On Wisdom. A Philosophical Dialogue
Sound Bite
What does it mean to live well? Every day we choose how to act, what to believe, and where to place our focus. This thoughtful book draws us into an engaging conversation about topics that we often leave unspoken but which wise people think through as a fundamental part of living. The mystery is really not so great: it is within reach all the time.

Debating the real meaning of strength, weakness, belief, doubt, intelligence, and judgement, we gain a deeper sense of these essential human qualities. Seemingly instinctive reactions like love, insight, even the build-up of habits, can be seen for the part they play in a well-constructed life.

The characters in this dialogue explore the dynamics between apparent opposites like action and self-control, youth and age, faith and knowing. They ponder the importance of role models and having someone who believes in you as you believe in them. Together, from the pragmatic perspective, the creative, and the contemplative facets of our personality, they build a well-rounded understanding of the essence of wisdom as it applies to living our lives.
