Professor Kristján Kristjánsson Publishes New Book on Phronesis

A new book on phronesis (practical wisdom) by Professor Kristján Kristjánsson and Professor Blaine Fowers (Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Jubilee Centre) was released on October 23rd 2023, although the official year of publication is 2024.

In Phronesis: Retrieving Practical Wisdom in Psychology, Philosophy, and Education, Kristján Kristjánsson and Blaine J. Fowers work through some of the relevant puzzles created by the recent phronesis discourse, filling gaps in the current literatures, and pushing the research agenda in new directions. The book does so in a way that is radically interdisciplinary and draws in equal measure on insights from psychology, philosophy, and education. Through its revised and applied Aristotelianism, the book makes a contribution to vital ongoing debates within moral psychology, moral philosophy, professional ethics, and moral education about the salience of phronesis – addressing the topic accessibly both for academics in key disciplines and for a wider readership of intellectually minded readers. In addition, it offers practical advice about the development and education of phronesis in different areas of professional practice and secondary and college-level education.

The book can be ordered here.
