Humanities Lecture Series

Mon., Mar. 2, 1998, 12:00am
Former United States Senator Nancy Kassebaum Baker lectured at Free State High School, where she talked about the pressing need for understanding the difference between knowledge and wisdom in today's society. The increasing influence of technology, such as television and the Internet, she said, demands that we make this distinction. In the context of international politics, such as the Iraq situation, as well as the recent White House scandal, the importance of relying upon personal wisdom gleaned from the abundance of available knowledge has become apparent.
