Too much wisdom
In the information era there is plenty of wisdom samples everywhere: quotes on your desktop, calendar pages, mass messages forwarded by benevolent friends, cupcakes and cheap lighters.
Facing the paradox of abundance, useful and effective knowledge seems further away.
I found this MOOC on positive psychology on the digital land and I think everyone could benefit from a deeper understanding of human existence. Following a multidisciplinary pragmatic angle, with insights from neuroscience, biology, sociology or cognitive sciences, and providing some practical tools you would have the access to a more (at least a bit) satisfied and meaningful life. I am pretty skeptical about wellbeing writings, but this course is much more than that.
If you've heard of the power of positive thinking, consider this course teaching positive psychology. Learn science…www.edx.org
Being fascinated about both the positive and negative human experiences spectrum, I will dedicate some more in depth writings to cover this subjects.
Next: The Happiness Hypothesis, a reading that expands your perception about life, by Jonathan Haidt, one of my favorite philosophers.
