Fostering Wisdom in the Classroom, Part 1: A General Theory of Wisdom Pedagogy

Bruya, B., & Ardelt, M. (2018). Fostering Wisdom in the Classroom, Part 1: A General Theory of Wisdom Pedagogy. Teaching Philosophy, 41(3), 239-253.

Abstract: This article reviews the literature on theories of wisdom pedagogy and abstracts out a single theory of how to foster wisdom in formal education. The fundamental methods of wisdom education are found to be: challenge beliefs; prompt the articulation of values; encourage self-development; encourage self-reflection; and groom the moral emotions. These five methods of wisdom pedagogy rest on two facilitating methods: read narrative or didactic texts and foster a community of inquiry. This article is companion to two further articles, one on a practical wisdom curriculum and the other on a study of wisdom growth in college students.
