Blanchard-Fields, Fredda; And Others
Educational Gerontology, v13 n6 p497-503 1987
Discusses contextualistic and integrative approaches to the concept of wisdom, and the evolution of the concept from an independent construct of intelligence to a component of intelligence, i.e., practical intelligence. Suggests operationalization of wisdom as the ability to integrate cognition and affect. Illustrates the integrative approach with an investigation of real-world problem solving in adolescents and adults. (Author/KS)
