Description - The Cynic Philosophers: from Diogenes to Julian by Diogenes of Sinope

A unique new volume illuminating the philosophy of the ancient Greek and Roman Cynics

From their founding in the fifth century BC and for over 800 years, the Cynic philosophers sought to cure humanity of greed and vice with their proposal of living simply. They guaranteed happiness to their adherents through freedom of speech, poverty, self-sufficiency and physical hardiness. In this fascinating and completely new collection of Cynic writing through the centuries, from Diogenes and Hipparchia, to Lucian and the Roman emperor Julian, the history and experiences of the Cynic philosophers are explored to the full.

Buy The Cynic Philosophers: from Diogenes to Julian by Diogenes of Sinope from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
