"A unique new volume illuminating the philosophy of the ancient Greek and Roman Cynicsnbsp The Greek Cynics owned no property and rejected fame and fortune, living almost entirely out of doors while surviving on wild plants and water from natural springs. They promoted ideals such as self-sufficiency, freedom, detachment, shamelessness, and toughness, and their philosophy penetrated not only Greek but also Roman civilization. This unique anthology draws together the writings on and by various Cynic philosophers, from founding figures Antisthenes and Diogenes of Sinope to Hipparchia, one of the few female philosophers in antiquity, and fourth-century Roman emperor Julian the apostate. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700nbsptitles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust thenbspseries to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-datenbsptranslations by award-winning translators.
