Question:

How do you think Socrates would define "wisdom?"

How can you apply the idea of Socratic Wisdom to your own life?

Answer:

Wisdom is knowing the full concept of an idea or every idea without any questions or hesitation we know that knowledge is factual. If this isn't possible then accepting that you don't the knowledge would be wisdom. This acceptance can lead to a drive to find the truth.

Socratic Wisdom can be used everyday when learning a new subject, like in school for example. The Socratic Method can clear confusing topics.
