So, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but I’m in the process of applying to a master’s program in Philosophy of Religion. I don’t know if I’ll get in, but I think it’s likely, and I’m hoping to write a thesis focusing on particular virtues. Thus, I’ve been thinking a lot about the virtues found in various cultures, and I’ve been writing a little about these ideas on my other blog. One of the things I’ve been considering lately is the nature of wisdom. What does it mean to be ‘wise’? What do we mean when we call someone ‘wise’? I had a friend recently make the comment to me that people learn wisdom by making mistakes, and I think this probably has some truth to it. So, this is your story challenge today!
Your Challenge: Write me a story about the nature and meaning of wisdom. What does it mean to be ‘wise’? What makes us ‘wise’ and how do we know if we are ‘wise’? Can we know if we are ‘wise’?
