    Abstract:
    This essay argues that the challenge of defining and delimiting the "Wisdom Literature" category over the past century of scholarship is an invitation to examine the origins of the "universal consensus" that the category primarily consists of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job. If that starting point consistently expands outwards, even consuming the entire Hebrew Bible, and attempts to restrict that spread repeatedly rely on that unexamined consensus, then it is high time to reconsider the validity of that consensus.
