As one embarks upon the pursuit of wisdom it is necessary to acknowledge the traditional paths to achievement. George Leone brings to light the major understandings of wisdom and explores the basic differences between the two ways that lead to it. The outcome of each path, philosophy and religion, leads to the same goal, but affects the seeker in different ways. The two ways are divergent but in the end reveal the same wisdom. 

George Leone has an undergraduate degree in philosophy and received his PhD in counseling from St. Louis University. He taught graduate counseling courses at UNM, UTEP, and NM Highlands University for 25 years. Leone has a lifelong involvement with philosophy and has gradually developed an understanding of this unique path to wisdom. His understanding of philosophy is that it is a path to wisdom, as the Greek meaning of philosophy is “Love of Wisdom.”
