Megatrend Renaissance of Wisdom

»Ideally a culture could emerge which
develops its core value system around
wisdom. After all, a long biography
needs content and purpose.«

Matthias Horx
Trend analyst and futurist


The Monograph
Renaissance of Wisdom

The centerpiece of the »Renaissance of Wisdom« project will be the publication of a monograph in 2008.
It will be a detailed, well-documented work in full color presenting a comprehensive understanding of all aspects
of wisdom.

Through comparative research and synoptical documentation, the insights of the various wisdom traditions,
science, art and music will be brought into a dialogue. In the light of this new and integral view, the similarity of
the concepts will be evident and the seeming diversity of the historical doctrines will be superseded by an all
encompassing and intelligent understanding that is harmonious with all.
