Abstract: Whitehead’s theory of wisdom education emerged from the ancient Greek civilization. It first overthrew the dominant theory of knowledge education and had a great impact on wisdom education and educational practice. However, Whitehead’s wisdom education is limited by its lack of holistic and critic perspective, moral orientation and super-subjectivity consciousness. Therefore, it’s essential to explore an improved theory wisdom education. This article argues that the theory of wisdom education needs to develop towards a new vision.
