The Getting of Wisdom

The Getting of Wisdom

Pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, the brass ring on the merry-go-round, the getting of wisdom… all of these things are considered elusive, difficult to grasp, nigh impossible! However, history and research tells us that the getting of wisdom is actually attainable, not necessarily all of the time by all of the people, but there are those among us who have been known to be wise.

PhD candidate, Leander Mitchell (University of Queensland), is therefore seeking your assistance. She and her supervisor, Professor Nancy Pachana, are looking to learn more about wisdom, in particular, the measurement of wisdom.

If you are aged 50 years and over and interested in helping to discover more about the elusive concept of wisdom and how it might be best measured, please contact Leander Mitchell for more information.
