Self-Knowledge

A History

Edited by Ursula Renz

Oxford Philosophical Concepts

  • Examining how philosophers tried to explain the rationale of the Delphic injunction "Know thyself", the book approaches the issue of self-knowledge from an angle which is unusual in philosophy.
  • The chapters are written by distinguished philosophers and experts in their fields who all engage in a common project
  • It contains various interdisciplinary reflections showing that the search for self-knowledge is an important theme in culture from Homer's time through the present
