Thesis Abstract

The world is drowning in information, but starving for wisdom. As interaction designers, we cannot continue to simply design for efficiency or practicality, while ignoring this important and deeply human topic. We need to design for wisdom. But how do we tackle such a complex topic?

Through a design handbook consisting of design principles and design fictions, my thesis hopes to encourage designers to design products that empower users to gain wisdom in their everyday lives.

The handbook will be published soon.
