Is a central idea in Hellenistic philosophy and civilization. Wisdom is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight. 


Wisdom has been regarded as one of four cardinal virtues; and as a virtue, it is a habit or disposition to perform the action with the highest degree of adequacy under any given circumstance. This implies a possession of knowledge or the seeking thereof to apply it to the given circumstance. 


Charles Haddon Spurgeon defined wisdom as "the right use of knowledge". Robert I. Sutton and Andrew Hargadon defined the "attitude of wisdom" as "acting with knowledge while doubting what one knows".Traditionally, schools share the responsibility to build character and wisdom along with parents and the community.
