Self-Knowledge in 40 Images: The art of self-understanding

Overview

When Socrates, apparently the wisest man of antiquity, was asked to define our highest purpose as humans, he responded, 'To know ourselves.' The advice has never been bettered. Without self-knowledge, all other efforts will be in vain. This is a book to help us on our journey to knowing ourselves better. Made up of 40 images drawn from across different cultures and eras, it takes us on a tour of certain key ideas that we need to befriend our deeper selves. With elegant prose and beautiful art, it helps us to know how our childhoods have shaped us, what difficulties we characteristically experience in relationships and what our purpose should be. Modern society gives us no shortage of ambitions. We will have landed on the one that can finally bring us peace and freedom when we are ready - with the help of this book - to begin the inward journey.
