  1. There is no such thing, and it can't be. At least not for me.

    However, there are philosophers with whom I am still interested in “talking” and “arguing”.

    Wisdom is not a religious “word of God,” but something that makes you think about even the most obvious things.

    In this sense, for me personally, Socrates continues to ask questions that he himself answers, but … ” my answers are also important to him.”

    I will not say that the wisest, but definitely the most beloved philosopher was and is Nikolai Alexandrovich Berdyaev. The main quality of a philosopher is to show how he thinks, how “wisdom” is formed, which turns from the personal quality of a sage into your thoughts and your attitude to the world.

    Bertrand Russell's encyclopedic style is fascinating and makes you reach out to universalism and perfection yourself.

    Seneca's friendly and … “domestic” philosophy can calm and give firmness in the vital elements of fate.

    But Camus's philosophy (wisdom) for me has a fraternal character with its understanding and simplicity…

    Therefore, it is difficult for me to single out the wisest of them. Maybe this is the wisdom – to refuse to choose the very best.

  2. Without information about how the questioner sees wisdom, I don't see any way to respond.

    In my opinion, wisdom has no gradation, so if even two contemporary philosophers “agree” on the” essence ” of wisdom, then both are equally involved in it, but for the non-wise, this circumstance means absolutely nothing…

  3. For me, the wisest sage in our world is the Chinese philosopher Li Er, better known as Lao Tzu. He is the author of the treatise “Daode-ching means” A Treatise on the Path and Virtue.” This treatise was written more than 2,500 years ago using five thousand hieroglyphs. Lao Tzu was born in the sixth century BC. e. he was known as the “old philosopher” or “old child.” The treatise ” Daode-tsing is kept by mankind as one of the most precious treasures. Many centuries have passed, but his work, today, is as relevant as at the time when it was written. His Treatise provides answers to all the questions of our time. For me, this is the greatest human achievement in our world!!! With respect.

  4. “People are actually committed to systems that are essentially totemism and idolatry.”

    “Psychology cannot be separated from philosophy and ethics, nor from sociology and economics.”

    Erich Fromm, “A Man for Himself”.

    This wonderful gentleman is supposed to be a social psychoanalyst, which does not in the least prevent me from considering him the wisest philosopher I know, whose formulas are freely available today.

  5. It is better to talk about literacy and illiteracy in philosophy. Literate can be called philosophers who do not violate the syntax and grammar of the philosophical language. Example. The core of any philosophy is ontology (metaphysics), and ontological statements contain the reason in these statements themselves (ontology speaks of self-causal, self-basic things). Let us assume that conscience is the cause of conscience. And any of your thoughts should be built in such a way that self-foundation is not violated (you can not put your conscience in something more. Or, it can't be a subset of something). The list of competent philosophers is always individual. I have my own, you have your own.

  6. Many philosophers have truly wise thoughts. But there may be thoughts nearby that are not very smart. There are no perfect people. Most often, I probably agreed with Socrates and Omar Khayyam. Although there's no guarantee that I'm right.
