The knowledge revolution that is highly regarded by the current society in this noted Information Age has the related risks of undermining the native wisdom. Following this claim, the underdevelopment evident in the poor countries should not be associated with lack of knowledge for doing so will be undermining the poor's basic economic factors and further alienate them from the rich nations. Furthermore, the ancient knowledge will be undermined on the uncritical bases of the formal modern systems of knowledge (Dixit, 2003). It is vital to appreciate the difference between knowledge and wisdom in the current society. While as knowledge has the power of impacting the society and advancing it, wisdom appears to be personal and does not necessarily uplift the society. Based on history, knowledge has impacted the societies and the only difference of the historical application of knowledge and that of the current knowledge society is the speed and capacity of transferring it.
This article has looked at the historical aspect of knowledge as well as the present situation. It has as well given clear examples in its contrasting between knowledge and wisdom together with the implication of each to both the historical society and the current society. The case of a monk associated with some selfish form of wisdom is crucial in expressing and relating the dangers associated biased judgmental attitudes as seen amongst the current society between the poor and the rich nations. The dangers associated with misuse of knowledge are also elaborated and the benefits of sharing the knowledge objectively for the benefit of mankind are outstanding enough to warrant this as well researched and written paper (Dixit, 2003).
