Wisdom and Lifelong Learning in the Twenty-First Century
Trowbridge, Richard Hawley
London Review of Education, v5 n2 p159-172 Jul 2007
While research indicates that humans tend potentially to develop towards wisdom in later years, a review of mainly participant-determined groups and courses in 338 lifelong learning centers for older people shows little interest in wisdom or personal development activities. With the suggestion that this apparent lack of interest may be partially owing to the lack of programs for cultivating wisdom, a model is presented that can be practised both independently and in formal education settings, and whose results can be assessed.
