Free download Fragmenta Cynicae Philosophiae é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read · PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Diogenes of Sinope S Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features including expert introductions by leading authorities voluminous notes to clarify the text up to date bibliographies for further study and much Diogenes said he would rather meet with failure among the cultivated than with success among the uncultivated That was when I was just as you are now but what I am now you will never be Diogenes said People pray to the gods for good health and yet most of them consistently act in such a way as to damage their health Seeing the servants of Anaximenes moving a large amount of furniture he asked Who does that belong to and when they replied To Anaximenes he said Isn t he ashamed to possess all that when he doesn t even possess himself This volume collects sayings and anecdotes by and related to Diogenes and a handful of his followers the same for Arisippos and the Cyrenaics and also includes some Apocryphal letters I only read the ones relating to Diogenes To him literature music mathematics science and philosophical investigation and discussion were a distraction and a waste of time Diogenes was a great simplifier who lost sight of an entire dimension of human life by scorning it as a tissue of illusion Robin Hard gets at a fundamental uestion which you may find asking yourself when reading Diogenes those things literature music mathematics science philosophical investigation and discussion do they have value or are they utterly pointless If they are utterly pointless it could be argued that you should take away a great deal from Diogenes than you hopefully do but if they do have value you will realise he has taken Cynic philosophy to an absolute extreme as Robin Hard also remarks It was a commonplace of Socratic thought that one can be rich by being satisfied with little and so achieve a measure of invulnerability to fortune Diogenes radicalised this idea taking it to the utmost extreme If one takes into account only one s most basic needs and desires putting everything else aside as mere fancy and illusion and is content to satisfy those needs in the simplest and most direct way possible one needs hardly anything at all and if one divests oneself of all that one possesses to live as a vagrant one can anticipate the very worst and become inured to any hardship and so achieve complete invulnerability to fortune in which case you may find yourself leaning towards Plato s thinking that Diogenes is a Socrates gone mad However the second opinion may not stop you from sympathising with Alexander when he is said to have remarked If I were not Alexander I should be Diogenes May I recount what Diogenes did with the man who declared that Athens was an expensive city He took him in hand and led him off to a perfume seller and asked how much a half pint of myrrh cost A mina replied the seller and Diogenes cried out The city is indeed expensive And then he led the man off to a butcher s shop and asked the price of a choice cut of meat Three drachmas replied the butcher and Diogenes said The city is indeed expensive Next to a seller of fine wools where he asked the price of a full fleece a mina was the reply and he cried again The city is indeed expensive Here now he said and took the man to a lupin seller and asked How much for a uart A copper was the reply and Diogenes cried How cheap the city is And then again to a seller of dried figs Two coppers And to a seller of myrtle berries Two coppers How cheap the city is So the fact of the matter is that the city is not cheap or expensive in itself but expensive if one lives expensively and cheap if one lives cheaply 24bOne day he shouted Hey men and when some people came along he struck them with his stick saying I called for men not scum 60He walked around Backwards in the public arcade and when people laughed at him said Aren t you ashamed while you re walking in the wrong direction along life s path you scoff at me for walking backwards 73Diogenes said that true pleasure lies in having one s soul in a calm and cheerful state and that without that the riches of a Midas or Croesus will bring no benefit and if one suffers any distress at all over matters small or great one is not happy but wretched 106aTo someone who said life is bad he said Not life but life lived badly 108When asked whether a certain man was wealthy Diogenes replied I have no idea because I don t know how he uses his wealth 143Seeing a youth spendthrift who had suandered his inheritance feeding on bread and olives and drinking water he said If you d breakfasted in that way by force of reason you wouldn t be dining in that way by force of necessity Love he

engaging in philosophy It is a fine thing he said that you should cause the lovers of your body to turn to the beauty of your soul 178When someone asked how one can become a teacher to oneself he replied By reproaching first of all in oneself those faults that one reproaches in others 274Diogenes said from books one should take for use only what is of true value and the rest one should throw away just as we do with bones for we make us of their marrow while we throw the bones themselves to the dogs 291A disreputable eunuch had inscribed above the entrance to his house Let nothing evil enter in How then enuired Diogenes will the master of the house be able to get inside 364Diogenes was suffering from pain in his shoulder because he had been wounded I think or perhaps for some other reason Since the pain seemed to be very severe someone who was on bad terms with him scoffed at him saying Why don t you die Diogenes and free yourself from your sufferings to which Diogenes retorted those who know what they should do in life and what they should say those are people for whom it would be better to stay alive indicating that he placed himself in that category As for you he continued since you have no knowledge of what you should say or do it would be an excellent thing if you were to die but it would be proper for me as one who has knowledge of these things to stay alive 386Demetrios says in his book On the Men of the Same Name that Alexander died in Babylon on the same day as Diogenes died in Corinth He was an old man in the 113th Olympiad 245 and you are

Free download Fragmenta Cynicae Philosophiae é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read · PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Diogenes of Sinope Diogenes the Cynic is famed for walking the streets with a lamp in daylight looking for an honest man His biting wit and eccentric behavior were legendary and it was by means of his renowned aphorisms that his moral teachings were transmitted He scorned the conventions of civilized life and his ascetic lifestyle and caustic opinions informed the Cynic philosophy and lat Just about everything I thought I knew about this guy seems unlikely to be true which is always one of the annoying things in life For instance he is unlikely to have walked around Athens carrying a lamp looking for a good man it turns out he was looking for a man of any description He is unlikely to have said to Alexander when asked what Alexander could do for him to get out of his sun it seems most of his reported interactions with great men were indicative of what he might have said to them if they d met rather than what he actually did say He probably didn t live in a large earthenware jar but rather just about anywhere that was convenient given the time of year and weather outside And and this troubles me than all the rest put together he probably didn t walk about the streets masturbating in public and when asked why say if only I could cure my desire for food by merely rubbing my stomach Even so Diogenes is a curious guy He was the first cynic the word comes from the Greek for dog This was originally meant as a insult used by others against him but he adopted it because offence can only be taken and so by adopting the name himself seeing himself as a guard dog for his friends virtues the implied insult was deflected He believed that people spent far too much time acuiring things that they basically didn t need or even want and that this was tragic since life ought to be about much important things It would be wrong to think he lead a simple life rather that like Socrates he saw his task as being to be a gadfly who would annoy people into reconsidering their lives He consciously sought to shock people to show how foolish their customs were and how much of their lives were wasted on pointless things He was compared to a drunken or insane Socrates but again not something that particularly bothered him He had decided to take the shortest path to virtue but the shortest path is anything but the easiest path The metaphor used is of two tracks up to the Parthenon one a gentle slope winding up the hill the other nearly straight up the side The short path being therefore much much harderThis is virtually the opposite of Plato s Socratic dialogues This consists of a series of what could be called philosophical one liners Humour clearly played a large role in Diogenes armoury as it ought to for all those who try to challenge the existing order I came away from this unsure of what to make of Diogenes It is hard to see how the world could exist if everyone was to follow his advice for such a man to exist an entire society must also exist all the same we do need people to poke fun at us and make us uestion our assumptions and even how we live and why Although I have to say that spitting in the face of one s host so as not to spit on their floor or masturbating in public even if only by repute are probably choosing to live dangerously than you absolutely need to even if you are going to be a philosopher Niets was wat het leek year and weather outside And and this troubles me than all the rest put together he probably
