Socrates' philosophical perspective of "self" is fundamentally rooted in the maxim, "Know thyself." For him, self-knowledge and self-awareness are imperative to individual wisdom and virtue. He believed that an unexamined life is not worth living. He encouraged introspection, questioning one's own beliefs and values. Socrates asserted that the "self" is not material or physical, but rather an immortal and unchanging soul that is more important than the physical body. His philosophy highlights the importance of moral and ethical understanding and personal integrity.
