Poly & Phil Cafe Discussion - The Self

*This meeting is back on since Eric and Anna volunteered to serve as event organizers.*

"Know thyself" is a famous aphorism from Ancient Greece.  But what, exactly, is the self? What distinguishes "self" from "world"? Some philosophers have contended that the existence of the self is one of the surest things we can know. Others have argued that the self is in some sense an illusion. What do you think?  (If "you" really exist at all, haha...)

    Being a first timer I had no expectations. I enjoyed every minute of our discussion. I appreciated everyone's input and hope that I contributed in a positive way. Lots of food for thought. ~ oh no, I think my head is imploding !!! ~
