"I'm not sure there's such a thing as the cultural 'center,' nor that it's very interesting if it exists. But left of center and right of center, in the expansive middle and heart of our life together, most of us have some questions left alongside our answers, some curiosity alongside our convictions. This book is for people who want to take up the great questions of our time with imagination and courage, to nurture new realities in the spaces we inhabit, and to do so expectantly and with joy." In Becoming Wise , Krista Tippett has created a master class in living for a fractured world. Fracture, she says, is not the whole story of our time. The enduring question of what it means to be human has become inextricable from the challenge of who we are to one another. She insists on the possibility of personal depth and common life for this century, nurtured by science and "spiritual technologies," with civility and love as muscular public practice. And, accompanied by a cross-disciplinary dream team of a teaching faculty, she shows us how. "Krista Tippett [is] a modern-day Simone Weil. . . . Becoming Wise is a tremendously vitalizing read in its totality--a wellspring of nuance and dimension amid our Flatland of artificial polarities, touching on every significant aspect of human life with great gentleness and a firm grasp of human goodness." --Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

display_description In Becoming Wise, Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from her public radio program and podcast "On Being." This book offers a grounded and fiercely hopeful vision of humanity for this century--of personal growth but also renewed public life and human spiritual evolution. Tippett has interviewed the most extraordinary voices examining the great questions of meaning for our time. Here, she distills the insights she has gleaned from these luminous conversations into a coherent narrative journey, over time and from mind to mind. The enduring question of what it means to be human has now become inextricable from the question of who we are to each other.
