It covers the philosophical and sociocultural foundations of wisdom, and showcases the measurement and teaching of wisdom.

How to develop wisdom is discussed and practical information is given about how to instil it in others. The book is accessible to a wide readership and includes virtually all of the major theories of wisdom, as well as the full range of research on wisdom as it is understood today.
