Are thinking and logic enough to understand the meaning of existence, or is there something more? The ancient Greeks believed there was another dimension beyond logic and reasoning and they called it Sophia, Wisdom, which they believed to be the ultimate good. In Eastern traditions, wisdom is often synonymous with the Truth, the true nature of existence, available to those who can see beyond the ephemeral and ever-changing. In Sanskrit, it is known as prana– insight, into the nature of reality. But what is this human quality, and how do we recognize and develop it?
THE CALL OF WISDOM examines the nature of wisdom, how it can be both universally recognized yet expressed in different ways by different traditions, and why our survival today as a species and a planet will almost certainly depend on it. The program features Jean Shinoda Bolen MD., an author, activist and Jungian analyst who has written several books on the archetypal psyche of women and men in the development of human consciousness, meeting Roger Walsh MD.,Ph.D. a professor of psychiatry, philosophy and anthropology, who recently edited a book on how Wisdom can be understood and cultivated.
Two knowledgeable authorities and wisened souls come together for the first time to discuss this rich topic, and to address some urgent wisdom-related questions which now face the human race.
