In a very interesting, unique and well thought out treatise on many facets of wisdom throughout history, The Pursuit of Wisdom: A Chronological Inquiry of the World's Most Influential Seekers of Wisdom In the Fields of Theology, Philosophy, and Science by author Dean Chavooshian, will, at the very least, give readers a great deal to think about. Looking at historical truths from philosophy, religion and science, the author has presented a logical basis for how mankind has sought wisdom, and how we can now look at these ideas from the past in a critical and scientific fashion to inform our own basis for wisdom today. Readers will be fully engaged and enthralled in this work, not to mention educated!

I very much enjoyed The Pursuit of Wisdom. Author Dean Chavooshian has done a wonderful job in providing a highly researched and well argued basis for this study of wisdom and historical ways of achieving it. Any reader who enjoys a great read with excellent educational merit and historical credence should absolutely read this book. I highly recommend The Pursuit of Wisdom: A Chronological Inquiry of the World's Most Influential Seekers of Wisdom In the Fields of Theology, Philosophy, and Science and hope that author Dean Chavooshian is already hard at work on his next book as we speak. If it’s anything like this one, it will definitely be worth a read!
