  1. Probably not, not compatible. But this is not as easy as it seems at first glance. We understand.

    Wisdom, taken as an understanding of cause-and-effect relationships, is increasingly impersonal as it develops. And less and less wants to interfere in any battle, including “good” and “evil”, becoming more and more a witness, not a party to the conflict.

    On the contrary, evil (when viewed “from above”) is a very specific interest fixed on one of the parties to a tough conflict. “Evil” for one of the parties to a conflict is often “good” for the other.

    On the one hand, impersonality, on the other – “I” – interest.

    On the one hand, the view is “from above”, on the other-the plane of action.

    On the one hand, observation, on the other – active participation.

    Wisdom and evil: somehow they are not very compatible. But not because of the identity of wisdom and goodness! Everything is relative.

  2. Dal: WISDOM = INTELLIGENCE + GOODNESS (sum of two positives)

    The great classic Dahl in his dictionary gave a brilliant detailed definition of Wisdom as an Ideal.

    The equivalent formula logically follows from this definition :

    ANTI-WISDOM = Stupidity or Evil,

    in the particular worst case, this is –

    Stupidity+Evil (sum of two negatives).

    Today it is fashionable to invent/invent/invent your own inappropriate opinion out of your head.

  3. Disagreements over good and evil caused Archangel Lucifer to turn his back on God. That is, darkness is not so much evil as a different idea of good. Whether wisdom can be evil depends on the evaluation. For example, the Indian goddess Kali can cut off from a person everything that hinders him on the path to Enlightenment. That is, all attachments and affects – consider work, family, etc. From a certain point of view, this is a big evil:)

  4. Wisdom cannot be evil, for wisdom is not gained by multiplying knowledge, but by melting it in the furnace of a loving heart. “…While we still don't fully understand the nature of good and evil, there is no doubt that they are very powerful. It is not for nothing that the cult of good leads to progress, and the cult of evil and power leads to destruction and wars.” Wisdom comes as the ability to feel comfortable under any circumstances-both familiar and unpredictable. Oddly enough, wisdom takes effect after thinking stops. Because of this, wisdom cannot be compatible with evil. With respect.

  5. Wisdom and evil are completely different planes of understanding.

    Wisdom is learned, acquired over the years. It only comes to a mature person.

    Another concept is a mature person. This person is not one who has reached a certain age, but one who has matured in consciousness. If this does not happen, then the elderly begin to resemble small children.

    Wisdom teaches. And learning is not always easy and enjoyable. For this reason, for some it may seem like a manifestation of evil. For example, if a person wants to become stronger, wisdom will begin to throw up, create difficulties for him.

    Evil – let's call it a destructive concept. Evil never leads to anything good.

  6. A smart person can be evil. Wise-hardly.

    Fazil Iskander: “Wisdom is a mind infused with conscience.”

    A smart person can show off their knowledge. Admire yourself. Elevate yourself, humiliate others, pour out streams of anger. Not always, but often enough.

    A mind that is infused with conscience is not likely to be irritated or angry, unless it is at something that is unrighteous – but this is not malice.

  7. This is essentially a theodicy. Whether Truth and evil, God and evil are compatible. For better or worse, there is evil. And the attempt to accept or rebel against this is the most powerful incentive for thinking and moral action throughout all the centuries. I think genius and villainy are compatible.

  8. “What if Mozart is right and I'm not a genius ? Are genius and villainy two incompatible things ? ..”An eternal question and a fairly simple answer. What is “wisdom” and what is “evil”? If it can always be seen and shared, then no, it can't. A long time ago, when we celebrated the “last call” and walked around the city at night, we came across a dog hit by a car on the way. Still alive, but barely breathing. The injuries were very extensive and my classmate bitterly remarked:” If I had a gun,I would have shot her. ” I was indignant- ” how ? kill the animal!” And she said, ” What's better-let him suffer ? “That was the first time I doubted that I understood well what was good and what was evil, and my classmate later became a good doctor.

  9. The duality of “good and evil” exists only in the mind of the observer (in this case, in yours). So it can be anything, because it depends on your perception.)

  10. Wisdom involves applying knowledge, insight, and understanding to achieve the desired outcome. Only the Creator knows everything about the universe. He created the physical laws of nature that people rely on in their research. He also gave people moral guidelines for a stable, meaningful and successful life. Therefore, only the Creator has perfect infinite wisdom. The Holy Scriptures say, “The wisdom that comes down from above is first pure, then peaceful, humble, obedient, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and not hypocritical” (James 3:17). Such wisdom cannot be evil, since it contradicts the very essence of the Creator.

    There is also human wisdom, which people acquire through their own efforts, through trial and error. They tend to play down the significance of God's demands or ignore them completely. Therefore, human wisdom can be evil and bring harm to people. “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God, as it is written,' He catches the wise in their wickedness '” (1 Corinthians 3: 19).

    Therefore, people need to rely not on their own wisdom, but on the wisdom of God.

  11. No. Wisdom means living according to your conscience. But the mind-yes, it is often evil, serving evil. And a wise man-he no longer understands the laws of men, but the laws of God. Evil is repugnant to God.

  12. If evil is understood as a manifestation of negation in relation to everything that is not “one's own” for a person, then it is clear that wisdom cannot be evil. From the point of view of the manifestation of wisdom, it always comes not from the individual, the self, but from, from and for the Common Good. Evil always comes from, from, and for the self (itself and its immediate environment).

  13. Naturally, it can. But this will be fake wisdom-wisdom only in words, not in deeds.
    Here you need to learn to pay attention to the correspondence of the word to its meaning, its real embodiment.
    The fact is that, due to the peculiarities of the language, any word can be used in different senses. There is a direct meaning, there is a figurative one, and there is a false one.
    That is why there are words: justice, chastity, piety, conscientiousness, etc.
    Why would it be necessary to strengthen one word with a double meaning if there were no doubt about the truth (authenticity) of the main meaning?
    The word judgment, shouldn't it speak for itself about the truthfulness of actions? Why then add a “truthful” judge?
    The word wisdom, shouldn't it speak about the usefulness of decisions? Why add “whole” (not broken) wisdom?
    The word honor, isn't it supposed to mean genuine honesty? Why add “good” (good, not evil, not false) honor?
    The word conscientiousness is synonymous with piety. Isn't conscience itself a good thing?

    Therefore, there is a false trial (not according to the law, but for a bribe, or for negligence), and damaged wisdom, and false honor and an evil conscience.
    Everything can be fake, even though it is claimed to be true (such is the nature of a lie – it will not betray itself).
    So in theory, wisdom and evil are not compatible, but in fact, frequent fakes, quite yes.
