How to Develop Self-Knowledge

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.

Unfortunately, self-awareness is devilishly hard to acquire. Our minds are hugely skilled at hiding the truth about ourselves from our conscious grasp. We start off as children fathoming very little of who we might be, and then must spend a share of our adult lives attempting to understand the often garbled legacy of childhood.

How to Develop Self-Knowledge teaches us:

  • Techniques to explore our own minds.
  • How to clarify vague and almost-out-of-reach emotions and thoughts.
  • How to understand the emotional dynamics of childhood.
  • How we appear to others.
  • What we are perhaps not easily able to see about ourselves.

We realise the extent to which our minds are squeamish about ideas that challenge our existing comfortable view of ourselves - and acquire tools that combat the tendency to avoid important insights into who we really are.

How to Develop Self-Knowledge takes us on one of the most exciting journeys: into our deepest, most elusive selves. We come away armed with a newly clarified sense of the distinctive nature of our personalities, what we need to watch out for and what our priorities and potential might be.
