    "consider" and "consider as"

    After "consider" and "consider as" should there be always a noun or may there be only adjective? For example:

    a) I consider him as a wise man.
    b) I consider him as wise.
    c) I consider him wise.

    Are all those sentences correct?

    c) is OK. You could also say "I consider him to be a wise man".
