Self-Knowledge

School of Life

£10.00

In Ancient Greece, when the philosopher Socrates was asked to sum up what all philosophical commandments could be reduced to, he replied: ‘Know Yourself’. Self-knowledge matters so much because it is only on the basis of an accurate sense of who we are that we can make reliable decisions – particularly around love and work.

This new essay book takes us on a journey into our deepest, most elusive selves and arms us with a set of tools to understand our characters properly. We come away with a newly clarified sense of who we are, what we need to watch out for when making decisions, and what our priorities and potential might be. 

Chapters Include:

  • Self-Ignorance
  • Philosophical Meditation
  • Emotional Identity
  • Honesty and Denial
  • Self-Judgement
  • Emotional Scepticism
