THYSELF Know Thyself?  What is “self”? Soul is Immortal: Socrates and Plato  The self is an immortal soul that exists over time.  Socrates: first thinker to focus the full power of reason on the human self o Realty is dualistic; two dichotomous realms o One realm is changeable, transient, imperfect; other is unchanging, eternal, immortal o Physical world belongs to changeable realm o Unchanging realm: truth, goodness, beauty, etc. o Our bodies belong to physical realm  souls belong in ideal realm o Soul is unified, indissoluble, immortal entity that remains the same over time Plato: committed to Socrates’ view on self, but recognizes difficulties with it o How is it possible to say that the self remains the same when every self is defined by process of continual change and evolution?
