Searching for Wisdom in All the Wrong Places… and receiving grants to do it.

“Don’t Forget the Owls,” Newsweek January 19, 2009 notes that under the auspices of the U of Chicago $2.7 million is set aside for “wisdom-seeking grants.” According to Jerry Adler, “several dozen researchers in fields ranging from neuroscience to art, music, and law have just received wisdom seeking grants…. The current state of the world is a good example of why wisdom research is needed.” While I agree that the world needs wisdom, the researchers  are looking for it in all the wrong places. There’s no mention of any money going to those who study the Old Testament and know that the book of Proverbs is given that man might “know wisdom” (Proverbs 1:2).  If the researchers began there, they would truly be thinking “outside the box.”
