For public thinkers and the thinking public...
The Journal of Modern Wisdom is a collection of writings from leading public thinkers aiming to discover new ways of achieving enduring virtues and pleasures.
The bewildering modern world is long-overdue a renewal of humanity's wiser values; enrichments such as trustworthiness, decency, creativity, kindness, earnestness, and the appreciation of the simpler things in life. You won't find sensationalist rantings, divisive ideologies, neurotic prophecies, nihilistic philosophies or ironic provocations in the Journal of Modern Wisdom. Just good sense - common, but refracted through the prism of expertise - from leading figures around the world.
Contributors to the inaugural volume include economist Professor Lord Layard, independent scholar Judith Rich Harris, essayist Theodore Dalrymple, philosopher Professor David Cooper, design guru Stephen Bayley, psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman, psychiatrist Neel Burton, artist Aengus Dewar, author Paul Outhwaite, poet Rebecca Watts, social-entrepeneur Daniel James Paterson and artist Thais Beltrame, whose haunting and beautiful works can be enjoyed throughout this unique volume.
In a series of accessibly-written but deeply-considered essays, the journal addresses topics as diverse as food, parenting, depression, manufacturing, social deviance, painting and the comedy of Bill Hicks. Each aims to achieve that balance between knowledge and aspiration - that practical awareness - which is characteristic of the exercise of wisdom throughout the ages.
For public thinkers and the thinking public, the Journal of Modern Wisdom is available now.
