(4-5th Century Athenians, Socrates and Plato)
LOOK OUTSIDE AS A CITZEN
Didn’t acknowledge the ‘internal self’, rather they saw themselves as part of a whole community, a polis, a city state of Athens
Divine structure of cosmos, the Gods, Homer’s idea
Socrates and Plato developed ideas of reason in the Western system
(5th Century AD beginning of Christianity)
LOOK WITHIN YOURSELF AS AN INDIVIDUAL
The state is not a mediator between you and God, you find the path yourself. Inner subjectivity matters.
LOOK WITHIN TO FIND THE TRUTH, TO BE FREE IS TO DEFY OUTSIDE SOURCES
Maintains the inner subject
Progression from the Christian tradition
Don’t live in the opinion of others
