The three principles described below are the basis of all of Socrates teachings. Socrates advocated self-understanding and felt so strongly about it that he deemed it more important than any other pursuit in life. These principles are what Socrates thought were the most important goals of philosophy.

1. Discover and Pursue Your Life's Purpose

The most important task in life is caring for your soul. Your soul is the real person, who you really are. It is the center of your character and what makes you who you are. It is the basis of your thoughts, feelings, values, and decisions.

The most important task you face is realizing your potential as a person, who you are. The state of your soul makes you either foolish or wise. Just like the body, the soul should be kept healthy.  An unhealthy soul is ignorant of the true priorities in life. You can keep your soul healthy by introspection and ridding yourself of ignorance.

3. Be a good person

Be a good person and you will not be harmed by outside forces.

If your soul is good, then outside forces cannot not harm you. If the most important part of you is your soul and the soul is not physical but inward then it cannot be harmed. The body may be harmed by another person, but the soul cannot unless you allow yourself to become susceptible to others. Search constantly for wisdom by way of practicing self-evaluation if you wish your soul to be liberated from outside harm.
