[2019] Phronesis and Techne: The Skill Model of Wisdom Defended Phronesis and Techne: The Skill Model of Wisdom Defended

Contemporary philosophers have contributed to the development of the skill model of wisdom, according to which practical wisdom is practical skill. However, the model appears to be limited in its explanatory power, since there are asymmetries between wisdom and skill: A person with practical wisdom can and should deliberate about the end being pursued; by contrast, a person with a particular practical skill cannot deliberate about the end of the skill, and even if she can, she is not required to do so. In this paper, I undermine these widely held asymmetries by elucidating the unnoticed nature of skill.
