Quotes of Socrates Publisher's description:
I know that I know nothing is a famous quote of Socrates. It became best quote among other quotes, which came from Socrates, the great Greek philosopher.
Does the phrase indicate that Socrates did not know anything? Great Greek philosopher paved the way for searching 'know'. An example: I know tomorrow I will travel to New York. All pre-arrangements are well prepared. There is NO possibility of canceling scheduled travel. Actually, I assume and I have faith. It does not mean I concluded. What will happen if I die tonight? The 'know' that I have mentioned would be 'nothing'.
I have heard that mediators meditate this phrase to become humble person by reducing ego priority, which wants to act 'I know everything'. When you start to reject to opinions, suggestions, advices and ways of knowledge, understand that you are missing so many things.
We feel we know everything. This is ego driven pre-idea. If we know yourself and our limits, we can say I know that I know nothing.
By the way, we know the quote is I know one thing, that I know nothing. It is simplified as I know that I know nothing. However, there are various translations of the original ancient Greek word as follows:
As for me, all I know is that I know nothing.
I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.
To know, is to know that you know nothing.
I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
True knowledge exists in knowing that you know.
