Kenneth Sharpe http://iowapublicradio.org en Practical Wisdom http://iowapublicradio.org/post/practical-wisdom <p>Greek philosopher Aristotle called it practical wisdom; we know it as common sense. Is there a lack of it in our society? In an encore show, listen back to when host Ben Kieffer spoke with Political Science Professor Kenneth Sharpe who, along with Barry Schwartz, wrote a book that argues much dissatisfaction with institutions comes from people within the system being unable to use their practical wisdom &ndash; or common sense. Also listen to callers who share personal stories of instances where practical wisdom was abundant, or abundantly lacking.</p> Mon, 11 Jun 2012 16:35:45 +0000 Ben Kieffer 2998 at http://iowapublicradio.org Practical Wisdom
