#73 - Dr Igor Grossmann - The New Science of Wisdom

A new podcast interview

Sup Monks!

This week, Dr Igor Grossmann, one of the world’s leading thinkers on the science of wisdom, joined me on the pod.

Igor Grossmann is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, Canada, where he leads the Wisdom and Culture Lab. As a cognitive/social scientist, Grossmann has been working on demystifying what makes up a “wise” judgment in the context of revolving societal and cultural changes. His chief work aims to uncover misconceptions about wisdom and societal change and to identify cultural and psychological processes that enable people to think and act wisely.

In this podcast, we are discussing 1) What is wisdom? 2) How can we cultivate it? 3) Can wisdom help us address the challenges we face in the 21st century, such as AI and exponential technology?
