Study aspects of self-knowledge, theories of human nature and central dimensions of the self.
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.
This online course will be released in three self-contained parts, entitled, The Examined Life, The Unconscious, and Losing Oneself.
