Like many, I have given the origin and meaning of life a great deal of thought in an effort to live it fully-with grace and intelligence. In the process, I discovered that theological/philosophical discussions on reality are empty without the consideration of scientific inquiry as they inform each other on the nature of human existence. We can benefit immensely from the great minds chronicled in this book that have dramatically changed the world and helped man imagine himself in it-leading to one's own self-discovery. DISCOVER: In Theology Is the soul immortal? Is reincarnation possible? Islam's holiest shrine in Mecca was built by the founding father of the Jewish nation. How one man uprooted 1500 years of Roman Catholic domination with a simple document. In Philosophy Is the world pre-determined with orderly harmony or governed by man's free will? Is knowledge gained solely from experience and reasoning-or is it innate? How the self-awareness of existentialism allows one to live an authentic life. How 9th century Muslim scholars contributed to the foundation of modern civilization. In Science What makes all physical matter stable? How does matter reproduce itself? Isaac Newton described gravity's effect, but it was Einstein who showed how it originated. Did man evolve or was he created? The search for a unifying theoretical basis of all the sciences.

Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite In a very interesting, unique and well thought out treatise on many facets of wisdom throughout history, The Pursuit of Wisdom: A Chronological Inquiry of the World's Most Influential Seekers of Wisdom In the Fields of Theology, Philosophy, and Science by author Dean Chavooshian, will, at the very least, give readers a great deal to think about. Looking at historical truths from philosophy, religion and science, the author has presented a logical basis for how mankind has sought wisdom, and how we can now look at these ideas from the past in a critical and scientific fashion to inform our own basis for wisdom today. Readers will be fully engaged and enthralled in this work, not to mention educated! I very much enjoyed The Pursuit of Wisdom. Author Dean Chavooshian has done a wonderful job in providing a highly researched and well argued basis for this study of wisdom and historical ways of achieving it. Any reader who enjoys a great read with excellent educational merit and historical credence should absolutely read this book. I highly recommend The Pursuit of Wisdom: A Chronological Inquiry of the World's Most Influential Seekers of Wisdom In the Fields of Theology, Philosophy, and Science and hope that author Dean Chavooshian is already hard at work on his next book as we speak. If it’s anything like this one, it will definitely be worth a read!
