≪Organizer Abstract≫
Wisdom is a fast-growing research field at the intersection of personality, developmental, and social psychology. The psychology of wisdom may be increasingly important given the difficult issues that today's world is facing. How can wisdom best be measured? How does wisdom develop, and why do so few people become truly wise in the course of their lives? How does wisdom manifest itself in concrete situations, and to what degree do situational factors contribute to its manifestation? Leading experts in wisdom psychology will discuss these issues and give attendants an overview of the current state of research.
