The purpose of the Pursuit of Wisdom is the search for transcendent truth, in order to find goodness/ justice, and perfect beauty. Faith and Reason are also essential especially when somethings is not fathomable. The end objective of all wisdom is to find Perfect Love. Reviewed By Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite Review Rating: 5-Stars – Congratulations on your 5-star review! Pursuit of Wisdom by Robert T. Fertig is a book about finding the truth in everything that surrounds us. We all want acceptance and unconditional love; we crave it and it is in our most basic nature. However, we are also curious by nature, which is the reason why we need to know and understand the meaning behind the most common things in life. From understanding the “truth” of cultural change, climate change and even how or if we can live together as a community, these are the questions that we ask ourselves every day. The author talks about how these truths are important, how they are necessary for us to build a community, build trust and understand what it takes to accept every human being as a valuable addition to the community. The author shares his thoughts about his general understanding of what truth is, what is goodness, what exactly is justice and how every basic need of humans comes down to finding the most objective answer to their questions. Everything has a “truth” and if you understand that, you can understand everything else. This is the beginning of an awakening that the author believes every reader should have. I have immense respect for the author for conveying such a complicated idea in such a simple yet eloquent way. He had control over the narrative, he had a flow in mind and he executed it perfectly. I enjoyed the fact that the author didn’t force anything on the reader; he just laid out his ideas and his thoughts on the pages and gave it to the reader to make whatever they want with it. This is enlightening and educational at the same time.
