Practical wisdom

Excerpt from the book - 'Shop Class as Soulcraft'

Practical wisdom entails -

"the full appreciation of the salient moral features of the particular situations we confront. Our awareness of these features enables us to respond properly to them". 

~Amy Gilbert

While I think the practical wisdom gives us enough inner strength and build us independently strong to perform our role as individuals, attaining the same is not a easy process in itself. I guess it evolves with the kind of 'attention to detail' we give when we encounter any situation. And once we reach there, we would've overcome the fact that we were selfish in our acquired knowledge.
