The Rediscovery of Wisdom

Full Product Description

By reconstructing it and tracing its vicissitudes, David Conway rehabilitates a time-honoured conception of philosophy, originating in Plato and Aristotle, which makes theoretical wisdom its aim. Wisdom is equated with possessing a demonstrably correct understanding of why the world exists and has the broad character it does. Adherents of this conception maintained the world to be the demonstrable creation of a divine intelligence in whose contemplation supreme human happiness resides. Their claims are defended against various latter-day scepticisms.

The Rediscovery of Wisdom by D. Conway was published by Palgrave Macmillan in March 2016. The ISBN for The Rediscovery of Wisdom is 9781349410958.
