The author is proposing a revolutionary argument - that there might be some force or psycho-social blockage obstructing our evolution as so called Homo Sapiens, which gets in the way of our achieving our highest wisdom. Calling this force Sophiaphobia, the fear of wisdom, which is the opposite of Philosophy, the author examines what it is and where it comes from, speculating that it is operative in many levels and walks of society, not least inside the very institutions which are supposed to be promoting our education and intellectual welfare. The author also explores two related problems associated with Sophiaphobia, namely the questions of Recognition and of Philiaphobia, the fear of loving. This book should be required reading for all undergraduate and postgraduate University students and teachers, and for anyone interested in the intellectual and spiritual future of mankind.
