Why do we need wisdom when we have knowledge?

We live in an era when there is much knowledge but wisdom is rare.

Wisdom comes from analysis.

However more important than analysis is the need for criteria that form the basis for analysis.

As we pay so little attention to philosophy we rarely have a clear idea of what criteria are important to us and take the lazy view that if it's new knowledge it is desirable.
