Explain what is meant by "human wisdom." Be sure to consider in your response if the concept of what wisdom is has changed over the ages. Give examples of wisdom you have heard of or seen in your life experiences. Make a convincing case that advertisers are sophists. Are they? Give an example of nonsophistic and sophistic advertising. Use examples from print and other media. Respond to at least one of your classmate's posting with a 100 word minimum response Wisdom as explained in our earlier chapters is described as the “fundamental understanding of reality as it relates to living a good life; reasonable and practical, focusing on the true circumstances and character of each individual; good judgment about complex situations involving reflection, insight, and a plausible conception of the human condition.”(Ch. 1, p.12) Wisdom is can easily be associated with the intelligence of more experienced humans, which can also be a direct correlation of age of an individual and what life experiences they have had in their years.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
