To know yourself is to know how to live: it is the only path towards true self-improvement and lasting philosophical enlightenment. It means to love, hate and forgive yourself, to doubt yourself and believe in yourself, in equal measure, forever within the correct balance of nature. It is a long and arduous spiritual journey, an entirely subjective and unique experience, but also by far the most meaningful path through life that anyone could possibly hope to undertake. There is no book (including this one) that can teach it: this is merely a unique record one man’s own meandering progress, while simultaneously reflecting upon the extensive works of the renowned French philosopher Michel Eyquem de Montaigne – who was, arguably, the master and epitome of such intimate, introspective, candidly unabashed self-questioning. And this book is very much an homage to that most remarkable, wise, witty and ingenious of men.
