Actually, this passage is refering to the wisdom of the world vs the wisdom of God. So to man Gods wisdom is foolish, they can't understand it. But in actuallity the foolishness of God is superior to the wisdom of man. It should be noted that in the day when corinthians was written Philosphy was a big deal in the Greek mindset. They would sit around for hours debating not for an answer but simply to show their intellect. This is what Paul wants us to avoid worldy wisdom.
