According to legend, inscribed on walls of the temple on the sacred site of Delphi in Ancient Greece were two premier injunctions: NOTHING IN EXCESS, and KNOW THYSELF. This course will be an examination of the latter injunction in an effort to discover what self-knowledge is, why it might be valuable, and what, if any, limitations it might face. What is missing from a person lacking in self-knowledge that makes her less wise, virtuous, or competent in certain areas than others who have this capacity, and what if anything might she do to fill that gap? Historical sources as well as recent research in philosophy, experimental social psychology, and neuroscience will inform our investigation, in the course of which we will become students of our own dreams, and cultivate some meditative practices.

KNOW THYSELF - THE VALUE AND LIMITS OF SELF-KNOWLEDGE: THE EXAMINED LIFE의 최상위 리뷰
I learned a lot about what self-knowledge and how it can enhance my life. The lectures and forum discussions were very thought-provoking. The meditative moments were an added bonus!
this course was super well explained, lovely to watch, and very easy to absorb and apply to self through the introspection questions.
Good content just a technical issue some of the modules repeat themselves even though they have different names.
Fascinating subject. Course was well-designed, good lectures and interesting readings. Highly recommend.
Very well-done online course packed with knowledge. This was my favorite Coursera course thus far!
Great introduction to basic, Philosophical concepts and thinkers largely by way of Descartes.
Phenomenal! It allowed me to peer closer to views which I now considered to be misconstrued.
Tests were pretty easy, did not challenge much. Not that that´s bad, its just a thing.
Enjoyed the lectures very much. Found it to be thought provoking and informative.
A course that has impacted the way I live and think. Would recommend to anyone.
The course is well paced and covers very interesting and insightful topics
Wonderful course..! though yet to know more to know Thyself..!!!!
Module 4 felt a bit dry but the first three were interesting.
Very interesting course. Engaging and well structured.
