The Wisdom Page 


Knowledge Products produces adult educational books-on-tape in a wide range of "serious" subject areas such as philosophy, economics, political thought, comparative religion, etc. As they describe their offerings, "Basically we attempt to cover the great ideas and events of history. Each title was written by a historical scholar or educator and then edited into an easy to understand format." Their Giants of Philosophy series (narrated by Charlton Heston), World of Philosophy series (narrated by Lynn Redgrave), and Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality series (narrated by Ben Kingsley) are particularly relevant to the topic of wisdom. I (Copthorne Macdonald) tried the Baruch Spinoza 2-tape offering from the "Giants…" series and the Socrates tapes from the "World…" series and found them both highly informative and easy to listen to. Some tapes are also available on CD.
