On Wisdom: Modern World: change

1. Wisdom is universal, rooted in human nature, which has evolved over millennia. But it is not eternal because human nature, although slow to change, is not eternal.

2. We ought, then, to consider wisdom as we do mountains or the sea--changing, but on a scale so vast and slow that to us it seems eternal.

Yet such change is always and entirely a matter of political and social will, so that although the means may exist,
