Friends of Wisdom
Friends of Wisdom has at present 369 members, academics and educationalists from around the world.
This is an association of people sympathetic to the idea that academic inquiry should help humanity acquire more wisdom by rational means.
Wisdom is taken to be the capacity to realize what is of value in life, for oneself and others. It includes knowledge, understanding and technological know-how, and much else besides.
Friends of Wisdom try to encourage universities and schools actively to seek and promote wisdom by educational and intellectual means.
At present, Friends of Wisdom communicate with one another in the main by means of an emailing group (JISCMAIL).
