Maybe we all know how it feels to fall in love. But what does it mean – in a more metaphorical sense – to “fall in love with wisdom”?
“Wisdom begins in wonder” as Socrates put it. And falling in love is sometimes the beginning of a long-term relationship. So we arrive at the following question:
Does wondering mean – metaphorically – falling in love with wisdom? In a way this makes sense, since being in a state of wonder can be similar to the state when falling in love.
When we wonder about something we are curious, and the same happen when we are infatuated – we want to know all about that special someone.
So, the final question for this reflection is: can you recall an experience or a moment of wonder – a moment where you “fell in love” with wisdom, so to say?
