The idea of knowledge of knowledge was basically the claims thatany sense has knowledge of itself Whether it was a vision or desire oreven opinions which is why in vision if you cant see or if the visionis colorless that means you cant have knowledge of it Anything thatcan relate to itself is knowledge of knowledge as Socrates says soKnowledge is the knowledge of something and it has some such facultyso as to be of something hasnt it 168b In this paper I will arguethat the idea of knowledge of knowledge isnt correct because the ideait starts to change as Socrates admits he looks for someone else to tellwhether knowledge of knowledge exists As I said previously on my thesis because the idea starts tochange well at first we came to a point that knowledge of knowledge ispossible but now he brings in self control into the picture when itcomes to knowledge of knowledge as knowing as knowing that one knowsSocrates brings up the idea of the doctor about what is healthy and whatis not isnt knowledge of knowledge it is knowledge of itself There isa huge contradiction right there because as Socrates says Forexample when a man possesses swiftness he is swift when he possessesbeauty he is beautiful when he possesses beauty he is beautiful whenhe possesses knowledge which is knowledge of itself he will then ofcourse be knowing himself169e If a doctor possesses knowledge ofhealing someone he doesnt just know himself he knows the other personas well He has the knowledge of the other persons health That is theonly way how a doctor treats someone This argument isnt acceptable atall because the idea of knowledge of knowledge doesnt connect In addition to my thesis Socrates also makes another bigcontradiction that doesnt make any sense In the beginning of CharmidesSocrates
