Chicago Wisdom Research Forums 2015 (video)

By Brenda Huskey, The University of Chicago


On April 23-24, 2015, an interdisciplinary group of scholars representing religious studies, literary studies, and psychology will convene to discuss working papers on the theme, “Dialogue with the Self: The Quest for Wisdom and the Hazard of Self-Deception”.

On May 8, 2015, leaders in the field of wisdom research and scholars with diverse backgrounds and interests ranging across Psychology, Neuroscience, Economics, Education, Philosophy, Sociology, Communication Sciences, Music, and Business will convene in Chicago to engage discussion about various approaches for studying and applying wisdom. Invited speakers include Monika Ardelt, Judith Glück, Igor Grossmann, Ursula Staudinger, Valerie Tiberius, and many others.

Last autumn, faculty, students, and postdoctoral scholars engaged in a full day of presentations and discussions about ongoing wisdom research and new approaches for studying wisdom across disciplines. Howard Nusbaum, Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago, led discussions on wisdom from various academic perspectives, and how wisdom has important applications in the professions and in public life.
