in detail

Now and then wisdom is personified as feminine. In some cultures wisdom is admired as an own goddess. We encounter wisdom in numerous fairy tales, myths and folk beliefs as the archetype of the wise old woman, because wisdom requires maturity and life experience.

In many cases the world's creation myths show wisdom considering the tense dynamic of wisdom and doubt.
