As it is known, the human being is a being who has many aspects. In addition to this, he desires the satisfaction of some biological, psychological and sociological needs in these aspects. 'Self-knowing', as a historical pronunciation, has, in some degree, burdened a function for the basis of religious, philosophical and scientifical values. However, it is well known today that to be interested in 'self-knowing' has sufficiently neglected the phenomenal and factual reality in the context of reaching the abstract values, knowing them and bringing argument for their truthness. So, when it is thought that the human activities, must turn towards to a human top-aim, the adopt of `self-knowing' is not sufficient for individual. An important pronunciation which fills this lack is the 'self-realisation'.
