Abstract (Summary)

This study examined the concept of “wisdom” from the perspective of “sophiology”—a current in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Russian religious philosophy—particularly as it was used in the writings of Vladimir Solovyov, Pavel Florensky, and Sergius Bulgakov. The purpose of the study was to examine how the sophiological perspective as developed in these authors could inform an understanding of “wisdom” in the field of adult learning.
