Joseph Butler's Essay Titled 'Knowing Thyself'

79 Words1 Page
Joseph Butler cites example of King David to show how easy it is for people to deceive themselves. He also makes an injunction that “knowing thyself” should become a fundamental moral rule.

You work through your troubles and learn a little bit more about yourself each time regardless of your age or gender.
