325–326) Author Robinson Csikszentmihalyi and Rathunde Labouvie-Vief Baltes and Smith Chandler and Holliday Sternberg Orwoll and Perlmutter Meacham Definition Three historical definitions: Greek: an intellectual, moral, practical life; a life lived in conformity with truth, beauty. Christian: a life lived in pursuit of divine, absolute truth. Contemporary: a scientific understanding of laws governing matter in motion. An evolutionary hermeneutical approach to the study of wisdom suggests that wisdom is a holistic cognitive process, a virtue or compelling guide for action, and a good, desirable state of being.

Overton We once asked an ethnically mixed group of college students to name “wise” persons. The responses varied from their personal acquaintances and family members to well-known historical figures from all over the world such as Socrates, Confucius, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson Mandela, to name just a few. These undergraduate students with diverse backgrounds clearly knew what was meant by “wise” and had concrete ideas of the concept in their own unique ways. Social scientists in the past few decades, on the other hand, have been debating over what exactly constitutes the concept of wisdom.
