An Outline of Cynic Philosophy: Antisthenes of Athens And Diogenes of Sinope in Diogenes Laertius Book Six By Keith Seddon & C.D. Yonge

More > Graeco-Roman author Diogenes Laertius. The Life of Diogenes is accompanied by a detailed outline of Cynic philosophy, explaining Cynic doctrine and its significance for today's audience.

The nineteenth-century translation of C. D. Yonge has been substantially revised, and is supported by a new Introduction, Glossary of Names, Notes and Index.< Less
