Abstract:

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.
