In his provocative reassessment of conventional scientific wisdom, world-renowned neuropsychologist Elkhonon Goldberg brings together his cutting-edge findings to argue that, despite certain cognitive losses, the mind can, in fact, grow stronger as we age. This late-emerging mental strength, an integration of thought and analysis based on accumulated experience, which he terms 'wisdom,' becomes possible only as the brain matures. In The Wisdom Paradox, Goldberg delves into the mind's mechanisms, outlining how the elegant structure of the brain develop and change over the course of our lifetime.
