Publikace: SAYINGS AND ANECDOTES (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - DIOGENES the CYNIC. Key featuresThe only selection of the sayings and anecdotes of

Diogenes, the ancient Greek philosopher whose biting wit and

bizarre behaviour has passed down to the present day in European

literature and art. Offers a comprehensive survey of Diogenes'

moral philosophy in the form of pithy maxims and entertaining

stories, together with his immediate followers, including Crates,

and other early philosophers in the Cynic, Stoic, and Cyrenaic

schools, and a lively selection from the apocryphal correspondence

of the Cynics and Socratics. The first source-book in English for

Diogenes and the early Cynics, bringing together material from a

variety of different original sources. Attractive, colloquial

translation emphasizes the accessible nature of the material.

Introduction explains the significance of the anecdotal material in

relation to the moral teaching of each school, and looks at the

stories that have come down to us about Diogenes' famously ascetic

life, such as living in a storage-jar. Explanatory Notes identify

people and places, and explain literary and cultural allusions.

Includes indexes of names and themes. About this book A unique

edition of the sayings of Diogenes, whose biting wit and

eccentricity inspired the anecdotes that express his Cynic

philosophy. It includes the accounts of his immediate successors,

such as Crates and Hipparchia, and the witty moral preacher Bion.

The contrasting teachings of the Cyrenaics and the hedonistic

Aristippos complete the volume. Readership Readers and students of

ancient philosophy, sayings and anecdotes, students of Hellenistic

philosophy, Stoicism and the Cynics, literature, history of

philosophy. Publikace: SAYINGS AND ANECDOTES (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - DIOGENES the CYNIC. 'many men compete in digging and kicking but no one at all in the pursuit of human excellence.' Diogenes the Cynic is best remembered today for having lived in a storage-jar, and walking the streets with a lamp in daylight, looking for an honest man. Such stories formed part of a rich tradition of sayings and anecdotes; his biting wit and eccentric behaviour were legendary, and it was by means of these oft-repeated and embellished aphorisms that his moral teachings were transmitted. He scorned the conventions of civilized life, and his ascetic lifestyle and caustic opinions gave expression to the Cynic philosophy that in turn influenced Stoicism. This unique edition also covers Diogenes' immediate successors, such as Crates, his wife Hipparchia, and the witty moral preacher Bion. The contrasting teachings of the Cyrenaic school, founded by Aristippos, a pleasure-loving friend of Socrates, complete the volume, together with a selection of apocryphal letters. An ideal compendium of Socratic moral philosophy, this entertaining volume opens a window on to some surprisingly modern attitudes.
