Practical wisdom

1

I’m inspired by a presentation at the 2009 TED Conference from Barry Schwartz on the increasing need and value of what he calls ‘practical wisdom.’ He actually mentions Aristotle and the Greek values understood as the ‘virtues’ at one point, which points to his understanding of the Aristotelean category of knowledge called *phronesis*. Phronesis is the kind of knowledge we need to live and to act *well*. For Schwartz, for Edgeware (and maybe even for Aristotle) to deal with people in any way, at any time, for any purpose, is a moral act.
