1. Diogenes Of Sinope [Internet Encyclopedia Of Philosophy]
Biography and analysis.
Diogenes of Sinope (4th cn. BCE.)
Diogenes was a Cynic philosopher of Sinope. His father, Icesias, a banker, was convicted of debasing the public coin, and was obliged to leave the country; or, according to another account, his father and himself were charged with this offense, and the former was thrown into prison, while the son escaped and went to Athens. Here he attached himself, as a disciple, to Antisthenes, who was at the head of the Cynics. Antisthenes at first refused to admit him into his house and even struck him with a stick. Diogenes calmly bore the rebuke and said, "Strike me, Antisthenes, but you will never find a stick sufficiently hard to remove me from your presence, while you speak anything worth hearing." The philosopher was so much pleased with this reply that he at once admitted him among his scholars. Diogenes fully adopted the principles and character of his master. Renouncing every other object of ambition, he distinguished himself by his contempt of riches and honors and by his invectives against luxury. He wore a coarse cloak, carried a wallet and a staff, made the porticoes and other public places his habitation, and depended upon casual contributions for his daily bread. He asked a friend to procure him a cell to live in; when there was a delay, he took up abode in a pithos , or large tub, in the Metroum. It is probable, however, that this was only a temporary expression of indignation and contempt, and that he did not make it the settled place of his residence. This famous "tub" is indeed celebrated by Juvenal; it is also ridiculed by Lucian and mentioned by Seneca. But no notice is taken of this by other ancient writers who have mentioned this philosopher.

Article and anecdotes about his way of life by Ben Best.
Diogenes of Sinope
by Ben Best
I have long been inspired by the apocryphal story that "Diogenes of Sinope" went about ancient Greece vainly searching for an honest man. But I have no interest in being his apologist. Since there is no authenticated historical documentation about him I will relate some of the tradition about his life more from the point of view of intrinsic interest than from concern for historical accuracy. A major source of information is the third century (AD) Roman doxographer Laetius Diogenes, from whom much that follows is taken. "Cynicism" of ancient Greece and Rome derives its name from the Greek word for "Dog". Aristotle refers to Diogenes as "The Dog" and Diogenes seems to have accepted the nickname. Cynicism was not a "school of philosophy", but rather an "erratic succession of individuals" which can be said to have begun with the philosopher Antisthenes. Antisthenes, an intimate and admirer of Socrates, disclaimed refined philosophy believing that the plain man could know all there is to know. Antisthenes was probably more consciously philosophical though less clever than his pupil Diogenes. Antisthenes emphasized moral self-mastery and is said to have rejected government, property, marriage and religion. But while property was regarded as an encumberance by Antisthenes, Diogenes was not above stealing, claiming "all things are the property of the wise". The objective of Cynicicsm was self-sufficiency ("autarkeia") and the cynic virtues were the qualities through which freedom was attained. The most important virture was callousness or apathy, which had to be attained through training. Another virtue was ruggedness or endurance. The lower animals were to be emulated insofar as they were independent of clothing, shelter and the artificial preparation of food. Cynics sought to disregard laws, customs, conventions, public opinion, reputation, honor and dishonor. The Greek satirist Lucian represents a Cynic as saying: "Scruple not to perform the deeds of darkness in broad daylight. Select your love adventures with a view to public entertainment."

Diogenes the Homeless Philosopher
How is it that a homeless man could be remembered and admired for well over 2000 years? It obviously has nothing to do with ownership or worldly power. Let me give you some background on this legendary man who thought and lived outside the box , along with some of the stories told about him and some things to ponder. Diogenes was born at Sinope, an Ionian colony on the Black Sea, (which is now part of Turkey today, and known as Sinop) around 410 BCE. He worked with his father in the coin mint, but was booted out of town when he was caught adulterating the coins with base metals. He made his way to Greece with his slave Manes, who deserted him soon after. While at Athens, Diogenes heard about Antisthenes, the Cynic philosopher, and sought him out as a mentor. He kept pestering Antisthenes but was ordered to leave. He didn't give up, so Antisthenes tried to drive Diogenes away by beating him with a stick. Diogenes then said, "Strike, for you will find no stick hard enough to keep me away from you, as long as I think you have something worthwhile to say." Antisthenes relented and allowed Diogenes to become his pupil.
The Cynics belonged to a philosophical sect that was founded by Antisthenes who was a student of Socrates. Their way of thinking and living included these attributes:

7. Diogenes Laertius [Internet Encyclopedia Of Philosophy]
3rd century biographer of ancient Greek philosophers.
Diogenes Laertius (3rd cn. CE.)
Diogenes Laertius, native of Laerte in Cilicia, was a biographer of ancient Greek philosophers. His Lives of the Philosophers Philosophoi Biol ), in ten books, is still extant and is an important source of information on the development of Greek philosophy. The period when he lived is not exactly known, but it is supposed to have been during the reigns of Septimius Severus and Caracalla. Because of his long and fairly sympathetic account of Epicurus, some think that Diogenes belonged to the Epicurean School, but this is not clear. He expresses his admiration for many philosophers, but his own allegiances, if any, are not stated. He divides all the Greek philosophers into two classes: those of the Ionic and those of the Italic school. He derives the first from Anaximander, the second from Pythagoras. After Socrates, he divides the Ionian philosophers into three branches: (a) Plato and the Academics, down to Clitomachus; (b) the Cynics, down to Chrysippus; (c) Aristotle and Theophrastus. The series of Italic philosophers consists, after Pythagoras, of the following: Telanges, Xenophanes, Parmenides, Zeno of Elea, Leucippus, Democritus, and others down to Epicurus. The first seven books are devoted to the Ionic philosophers; the last three treat of the Italic school. The work of Diogenes is a crude contribution towards the history of philosophy. It contains a brief account of the lives, doctrines, and sayings of most persons who have been called philosophers; and though the author is limited in his philosophical abilities and assessment of the various schools, the book is valuable as a collection of facts, which we could not have learned from any other source, and is entertaining as a sort of

A Day With Diogenes by Terry Ballard
Announcer: In this first part of our video series of humorists in world literature, we are going to take a look at Diogenes the Cynic. Diogenes was a citizen of Athens during the time of Plato, although his approach to philosophy was a world away. Even though Diogenes left no surviving works, he was an influential figure in literature. In this presentation, you should pay attention to the ways in which Diogenes used humor to underscore the serious message of his cynic philosophy. Now, thanks to the magic of television, we will take you back 2300 years for an interview with Diogenes. Announcer: Good afternoon, Diogenes. In keeping with your reputation as a non-conformist, I see that you keep your bathtub outside of your house. Diogenes: The bathtub is my house. Announcer: I see. Well there must be some advantage to that. Diogenes: Certainly. No window can give a view like this, and if the neighborhood goes bad, I can just walk off with the house. Announcer: Have you always lived in a tub?

Here is the opening page of the CGI script it gives you the option to do a regular search of the PHI disk, a word-list search of the TLG , or to browse either disk.
Let's say we did a word-list search for philosophia . Here are the choices we get:
Let's say we select all of these checkboxes to look for all of those words. (The ones without accents are probably entirely printed in capital letters the TLG word-list does not record upper or lower case.) Now we get an awful lot of matches (7043) and the output is not very legible.
So we go down to the bottom of the page and ask for this to be turned into properly formatted Greek:

We decide to look through the Homeric scholia, and another page asks us to choose which of the scholia we want. We choose the scholia vetera to the Iliad . We are then asked to choose a particular location:
We are shown the beginning of the Iliad scholia and we can browse back and forth from that position.

Translation of diogenes Laertius Book VI, 9698 and notes by Celia Luschnig. Published at the Diotima Homepage.
The Life of Hipparchia
Diogenes Laertius Book VI. 96-98
Hipparchia, the sister of Metrocles, was also captivated by philosophical discourse. Sister and brother were natives of Maroneia. She fell in love with Crates, his words and his way of life, and took no interest in any of the men who wanted to marry her, not their wealth, not their family connections, not their good looks. Crates was everything to her. It went so far that she threatened her parents with suicide if she could not be married to him. Her parents begged him to make her see reason, and Crates did everything he could. Finally when he was unable to convince her, he rose from his seat and threw off his clothes right in front of her. "Here," he announced, "is your husband-to-be, and this is all he owns: base your decision on this!" He wanted her to know that she would not be his partner unless she shared his way of life. The girl made her choice and taking up the same style of dress as his she made the rounds with her husband, consorted with him in public, and went out to dinner with him. Once she had gone to Lysimachus' house for a symposium, and while there she confounded Theodorus, nicknamed the Atheist, by positing the following argument:
