Whose wisdom?

There is a saying in the West
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit
Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.

If this is the case, then wisdom is obviously not an absolute, but is culturally determined, because almost every fruit salad in China contains mini plum tomatoes (on the left side of the plate in the photo above).

What is Wise in the West, is not always Wise in the East.
