The care of itself is a synthesis form, a connection point, enters the history of the subjectivity and the forms of governabilidade. Read more here: David Fowler. In the culture Greek, the care of itself is the fact to occupy exactly of itself, to be worried obtains, in this culture the care of itself was atrelado to a perspective of government of the others or government of the city. For Foucault, when the Greeks defend the care of itself, in the truth, they mention the care to it of the soul, as space for the thought, for the reflection, the dialogue, the meeting with the other, that is, taking care of of itself, occupying of itself, to occupy of the soul, imply that the individual has one better understanding of its relation with the others and of the world that is its return, therefore, to take care of of itself, means to know if. When &#039 appears the dlfico rule; ' mesmo&#039 knows you it you; ' , it appears atrelado the beginning of ' ' he takes care of of you mesmo' ' , it is pparently subordinated. When the dlfico rule appears in the philosophy, it appears around the Scrates personage, where this appears being the man of the care of itself and has for function to stir up the others if to occupy I obtain same, if to worry I obtain same, to have care I obtain same. When Scrates goes to make its defense before its plaintiffs and its judges, it says that none ashamed for being in that situation is not felt little, quite to the contrary, Scrates says to be extremely proud for being able to interpellate the people and to say to them to occupy I obtain same, being this, an order given for deuses, which Scrates obeys. After that, Scrates, retaking the subject of the care of itself, says the athenians, that if really he will be the convict, who would lose, would be proper they, therefore would not have plus nobody to stir up them it if to occupy I obtain same.

In this care of itself, they exist so to speak, four important things. First, who is Scrates stirs up the others to occupy obtains same, but this activity was trusted to it by deuses, that is, Scrates is fulfilling orders. In according to place, Scrates that stirs up others to be occupied obtain same, finish leaving to occupy with it proper. In third place, the care of itself is being a moment where the eyes if open, it is waked up and if it reaches the first light. in room place, also exists the comparison that is made between Scrates and an insect that pursues the animals, pricks them it makes and them to run and to agitate itself, that is, the care of itself is then being a species of sting that must be cravado in the man, to be part of its existence and constitutes an agitation principle, of movement. We see that the care of itself is the bedding from which if it justifies the imperative of ' ' mesmo&#039 knows you it you; '. He is then described that the care of itself has close relation with it knows you it exactly you, being that, the care of itself folloies knowing itself exactly it itself and if becomes a basic notion to characterize the attitude and the philosophical activity.
