Wisdom is the essential heritage of Homo sapiens sapiens. We are not born with it, but it is actualized in us through the interplay between our experiences and our rational and intuitional faculties. By learning the ideas of history’s greatest minds, we can more quickly grow our wisdom. Pictured is John Locke, one of the many great minds of the past. The Great Books of the Western World collection is an excellent place to start on your quest for wisdom.
