Summary
Far flung destinations are often home to those seeking to "find themselves." Encouraged perhaps by Socrates' maxim for an ethical life: "know thyself." But do any of us ever arrive? Is the self a real and stable enough "thing" that it can be known? Or can we never catch sight of ourselves in the mirror? The Panel Anthropologist and author of Stuff Daniel Miller, actress and writer Adjoa Andoh, and KCL philosopher Christopher Hamilton examine the limits of self-knowledge.
