The Decline of Humility and the Death of Wisdom : The Source of Modern Society's Problems and the Key to the Solutions
by William Tully




Overview -

This book explores the universal virtues of humility and wisdom, as well as the interdependence of those two qualities. The author then traces how western society gradually moved away from treating them as virtues and began to relegate them to the status of vices because they allegedly reflected weakness and relics of religion.


Many of modern society's most serious problems have at their root, the decline of humility and wisdom. Modern culture glorifies egotism, arrogance and even narcissism. Virtual perception now replaces reality and balanced perspectives.


A return to humility and wisdom holds society's best hope for survival. By pursuing humble wisdom, mankind can return to its national pursuit of altruism, and society can return to a more civilized and kinder reality. Instead of overindulging ourselves, we can rededicate ourselves to the service of others.
