Jonathan Ichikawa develops a contextualist semantics for wisdom ascriptions, and exhibits the way it can remove darkness from foundational questions in epistemology. He argues that during pondering essentially approximately wisdom, epistemologists should also take into consideration the dynamic facets of the phrases we use to discuss wisdom. Contextualising wisdom defends a primary theoretical function for wisdom in broader theorising - facts, trust, justification, and statement are all explained
in half by way of wisdom - yet none of those connections can accurately be understood or liked independently from the contextualist method of wisdom ascriptions.

The booklet synthesizes of the most important rules in modern epistemology: contextualism approximately wisdom ascriptions, and the 'knowledge first' emphasis at the theoretical primacy of information. Ichikawa argues that the plain rigidity among those rules might be resolved-indeed, a vital subject of the publication is that every has whatever vital to provide the opposite. Ichikawa embraces contextualism, emphasizing cautious cognizance to its epistemic assumptions and implications. the result's a novel
take on principal questions about wisdom and its roles in human existence and discourse.
