Our Loss of Wisdom

This Our Loss of Wisdom instructional video also includes:

"A wise person knows when and how to: make the exception to every rule, improvise, and use these moral skills in pursuit of the right aims. A wise person is made and not born." Impress upon your learners the importance of leading lives guided by practical wisdom, of avoiding an over-reliance on rules and incentives which Barry Schwartz argues could destroy our desire to do the right thing.
