Greek Cynics




excerpt from the author's introduction:


This work was begun as a revision of a former work entitled, " Diogenes of Sinope, a Study of Greek Cynicism." But since there have been some changes in the point of view and some additional matter has been included, it is thought more appropriate to regard it as new work on the same subject. Diogenes of Sinope was a semi-mythical character whose connection with Cynicism is doubtful.


There are several versions of Cynicism; for instance, there is that of Epictetus, that of Julian, that of Theodor Gomperz and that of D. R. Dudley. In this work, an attempt has been made to show the Greek Cynics as they were and to explain their philosophy.
