Product description

Product Description

Einstein said, "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." When he said "same thinking," was he suggesting there were other ways of thinking and knowing, or was he simply advocating more advanced physics?

Julio Olalla’s "From Knowledge to Wisdom" presents a compelling case that what Einstein foresaw, and what humanity is seeing more clearly each passing day, is that a "new way" of thinking is essential to face the breakdowns we have created in the world.

Following Einstein's idea, the question we could ask is,“What IS knowing?” or “What is learning?” If we listen closely to educational experts and advisors feel is needed, we will hear that their concern is, “What should be learned?” not “What is LEARNING?”

There is ample evidence that our contemporary belief is that learning is synonymous with gathering information. The amount and variety of information and data available to us is at a level beyond previous human experience. And yet we are no more satisfied, no happier, not any more at peace, and feeling no more responsible as inhabitants of the earth. If knowing how to live was synonymous with having information, this should not be the case. We have long confused knowledge with wisdom - elevating the former and dismissing the latter.

"From Knowledge to Wisdom" illuminates areas of human concern that are often left in the dark. What is our unseen relationship with the world around us? What do we believe about learning and knowing? How has that served us and how has it kept us ignorant? What do we believe it means to be human? What new possibilities are emerging? Reflecting on these questions and exploring the possibilities the reflection brings has everything to do with how we understand the world we live in, our place in it and how we navigate life on a daily basis.

If you are “successful” by conventional standards, yet find yourself dissatisfied with your life, this book will challenge you to take a new look.
