Ad description

It’s in our nature to want to succeed.  It’s also human nature to want to do right.  But we’ve lost how to balance the two.  How do we get it back?Practical Wisdom can help.In this lively and provocative new work, Barry Schwartz and Ken Sharpe explore the core idea of “practical wisdom” – the essential insights that must be embraced to lead satisfying lives. It’s an aim that Aristotle identified millennia ago and that new scientific research proves is as crucial to life today as it was then. Practical wisdom, the authors say, is the essential human quality that combines the fruits of our individual experiences with our empathy and intellect. The goal is learning to be “a good friend or parent or doctor or soldier or citizen or statesman – and that means figuring out the right way to do the right thing in a particular circumstance, with a particular person, at a particular time.” But we have forgotten how to do this, and in Practical Wisdom, Schwartz and Sharpe illuminate how to get back in touch with wisdom; how to identify it, cultivate it, and enact it; how to make ourselves healthier, wealthier, and wiser. Barry Schwartz first introduced his case for Practical Wisdom at the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference in 2009. The audience rallied to Schwartz’s cause, making his lecture one of the most watched and  celebrated TED Talks ever. In Practical Wisdom, Schwartz and Sharpe carry that argument forward. They introduce us to the Canny Outlaws who have worked around the inherent problems with business-as-usual to achieve inspiring and satisfying, hard-fought results in fields from education to law and medicine, even custodial work. And they introduce us to the System Changers who are building a new, better, more rewarding and ultimately more efficient ways to work. And ultimately they do make us see that wisdom is above all a practical idea, and our surest route to a happier, more productive future.
