But in the defence of the 'necessarily' sometimes knowledge may be able to imply wisdom?
At least a form of wisdom or rout toward it.
What ever you say??? Now, there is the original settlement of any philosophical argument... I heard a good joke like that once...Maybe i should repeat it for the new ones..

If P does not imply Q, P cannot sometimes imply Q. Either P implies Q or it does not. Just because sometimes P is true, and Q is also true does not mean that P ever implies Q. P cannot sometimes imply Q, and sometimes not imply Q. "Imply" does not work that way.
Being a dog does not imply being a brown animal: so even if some dogs also happen to be brown animals, it is still true that being a dog does not imply being a brown animal. Similarly, even if some knowledge happens also to be wisdom that does not mean that knowledge ever implies wisdom. So, there is no defense of knowledge implying wisdom.
Therefore, to say that P does not necessarily imply Q, simply means that P does not imply Q. Period.
There is a connection between wisdom and knowledge, though it seems like a variable ratio... No one can be very wise without much knowledge, but wisdom as a quality is distinct from knowledge in the sense that great knowledge does not give people greater knowledge, where understanding, which is the quality we most think of as wisdom, multiplies knowledge...If for everything you learned you had the ability to draw more and more conclusion, and at the same time not over reach your actual knowledge, then many would consider that to be wisdom...People are considered wise in relation to what they know... Since my education is slight, it is easy to appear wise, yet one well educated is expected to by wise and may not seem so... Does that make sense???

Nice to meet you.
"All I know is, I don't know". I absolutely agree, but, how do I know that I don't know, if I can't know for sure that I know anything, for sure?
Is not "One man's wisdom, another man's folly"?
Thank you Fido, and journey well.
Wisdom is knowing the limits of one's knowledge... No one knows nothing... Much, perhaps most of our essential knowledge is encoded in our genes and onco genes... But of what we learn, we must always be suspect... It is always better to feign ignorance than to lose ones head for knowing too much...Worse are the disasters of pretending to knowledge one does not have, and people live their lives on faith, and what is that but a tower of certainty built without foundation...
