Biblical Wisdom

How is wisdom distinct from knowledge or information? If in modernity, wisdom was replaced by knowledge, in post-modernity knowledge is being replaced by information. We find ourselves, thus, two steps removed from wisdom—to the point that it is not clear we even understand what wisdom might be. Taking as a point of orientation Paul’s antithesis in 1 Corinthians between “the wisdom of the wise” and “the wisdom of God”,  this course will inquire after what true wisdom is, and how we might seek to live wisely in our age. Special attention will be paid to the question of how the Christian university might teach not only knowledge, but inculcate wisdom, and the effects this could have on our broader communities.
