Roger Walsh is one of the wise elders of Integral Theory, so it feels appropriate for him to be our first featured author. This article, which is the result of an ongoing research project, provides a window into a recent anthology Walsh has edited for the SUNY Press series in Integral Theory. In this forthcoming volume, Walsh showcases leading voices from various spiritual and philosophical traditions discussing wisdom. Throughout the article Walsh makes a persuasive case for how wisdom studies can benefit from an integral approach. He highlights a number of key ontological and epistemological questions about wisdom and uses the five elements of Integral Theory to shine a light on how we might better understand wisdom and its varieties. Reading this article will make you smarter, but it just might make you wiser, too.
