Nicholas Maxwell (2010) Wisdom-inquiry. One of the 50 best ideas of the 21st century, The Philosophers' Magazine, issue 50, 3rd quarter, article 34. Available online at http://philpapers.org/rec/MAXDPL

The most exciting and important new philosophical idea of the past decade, in my view, is the discovery that we urgently need to bring about a revolution in science, and in academic inquiry more generally, so that the basic intellectual aim becomes to seek and promote wisdom. We urgently need to transform our schools and universities so that they become rationally devoted to helping humanity learn how to tackle our grave global problems, and thus make progress towards as good a world as possible.
