“The classical ideal of wisdom was based on mental harmony resulting from knowing the highest truths. The ideal of wisdom of Kant’s modern person would be to realize the consciousness of one’s finitude and the rationality it entails—to know it is the tension between the meaningful questions and their impossible answers that defines the authentic human condition, and to make this recognition a defining force in one’s life.”
