Podcast: The Amateur Society – Don’t Discard Wisdom – 10.21.2019

2019.10.22

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This discussion focuses on wisdom, what it is, and why it is important. It may seem obvious that wisdom is good and worthwhile to pursue, but our culture has shifted in several ways that have in many instances led to a prioritization of education and intelligence over wisdom. We unpack these different definitions and make an appeal that all of us must pursue wisdom wholeheartedly in this generation. We hope you will share this broadcast with someone who needs to hear it.

For the dedicated amateur, thinking about this subject offers a wide array of insight into how to examine key ideas. The truth about this question has tremendous implications.
