    Spring 22: Do you know what you want? If so, how? And why does it matter to know yourself? If you don’t know what you want, why not? And why might it matter to fail to know yourself? Anyways, is there even such a self as you to know? This course will examine self-knowledge, self-ignorance, and the importance of each, using a wide range of readings from psychology, philosophy of mind, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, and Buddhist philosophy.
