What does Wisdom look like?

If time permits

To the table, “Oedipus and Wisdom,” add content to at least three new rows

To right-hand side of this same table, add a column labeled “wisdom; in this column will go succinct answers to the question, what does wisdom look like.  Over time, you will shift these answers into corresponding rows, in order to assess Oedipus’s wisdom at that point in Sophocles’ play, Oedipus Rex.

HW: in your notes, on a scale of 1-10, rate Oedipus’s wisdom at the point immediately after his first dialogue with Teiresias, the blind prophet.  “10” represents super-wise, while a “1” means simply a glimmer of the possibility of wisdom.  Have lines from the play lined up to support your rating.
