From Knowledge-Inquiry to Wisdom-Inquiry: Is the Revolution Underway?
Iredale, Mathew
London Review of Education, v5 n2 p117-129 Jul 2007
In the final paragraph of his 1984 book "From knowledge to wisdom, a revolution in the aims and methods of science," the philosopher Nicholas Maxwell boldly declared that an intellectual revolution was underway in the aims and methods of science, and academic inquiry in general, from what he termed knowledge-inquiry to wisdom-inquiry. Twenty years later, this article discusses to what extent this revolution has taken place. (Contains 1 note.)
