"Know thyself" - a guided imagery (TED style presentation)
Presentation Language: English
Imagery exercises have long tradition in
philosophy (see i.e. P. Hadot). In this TED talk a short guided imagery on the
Socratic "Know thyself" (gnothi seauton) is presented and carried out. This
imagery investigates the topic of self-knowledge in a practice-oriented and
experiential manner and the audience can participate actively interest exercise
or just listen to it passively. The purpose of this session is to get to know a
slightly different exercise for philosophical practice and to philosophize by
means of associative and creative thinking.
