Anecdotes of the Cynics (Penguin Little Black Classics)
'It's you who are the dogs...' What makes us happy? For over 800 years the Cynic philosophers of ancient Greece and Rome argued that the answer lay in a simple, self-sufficient life. This is one of 46 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series, to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946. Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics' huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries - including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.
Diogenes of Sinope was born around 412 to 404 BC and died in 323. Cynics were highly influential in both Greece and Imperial Rome and endured until the 5th century AD.
