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".

edit Life
Nothing is definitively known about his life. He must have lived after Sextus Empiricus (c. 200 AD), whom he mentions, and before Stephanus of Byzantium and Sopater (c. 500 AD), who quote him. His work makes no mention of Neoplatonism , even though it is addressed to a woman who was "an enthusiastic Platonist." It is probable that he flourished in the first half of the third century, during the reign of Alexander Severus (222–235) and his successors. The precise form of his name is uncertain. In the ancient manuscripts of his work, he is invariably referred to as "Laertius Diogenes," and this form of the name is repeated by Sopater, and the Suda The modern form "Diogenes Laertius" is much rarer, and occurs in

Diogenes of Sinope
The most illustrious of the Cynic philosophers, Diogenes of Sinope (c. 404-323 B.C.E.) serves as the template for the Cynic sage in antiquity. An alleged student of Antisthenes , Diogenes maintains his teacher’s asceticism and emphasis on ethics, but brings to these philosophical positions a dynamism and sense of humor unrivaled in the history of philosophy. Though originally from Sinope, the majority of the stories comprising his philosophical biography occur in Athens, and some of the most celebrated of these place Alexander the Great or Plato as his foil.It is disputed whether Diogenes left anything in writing. If he did, the texts he composed have since been lost. In Cynicism, living and writing are two components of ethical practice, but Diogenes is much like Socrates and even Plato in his sentiments regarding the superiority of direct verbal interaction over the written account. Diogenes scolds Hegesias after he asks to be lent one of Diogenes’ writing tablets: “You are a simpleton, Hegesias; you do not choose painted figs, but real ones; and yet you pass over the true training and would apply yourself to written rules” (Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers , Book 6, Chapter 48). In reconstructing Diogenes’ ethical model, then, the life he lived is as much his philosophical work as any texts he may have composed.

B.C.E. ) was an ancient Greek philospher and one of the founders of the Cynics . He was exiled from Sinope for adulterating the currency and went to Athens , where he became a follower of Antisthenes . Taking the precept that “virtue is the only good, all else is evil,” he practiced a life of ascetic self-sufficiency. He was known for his blatant disregard for social niceties and for the abrasive manner in which he spoke to people. Diogenes lived for a time in a tub, and wore only a cloak and carried a staff and a wallet containing his food, attire that became a Cynic trademark. He emphasized action over words and thoughts, and disparaged theoretical philosophy, mathematics, astronomy and metaphysics as being removed from reality. Many colorful and amusing stories are told about him. He is credited with establishing the tradition of Cynicism that was carried on by Crates and later became a foundation for Stoicism Diogenes was held in high esteem by the people, who honored him at his death with a tombstone bearing a dog—an animal to which he often compared himself.

Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Diogenes Laertius (3rd C. 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

[Back To A List Of Philosophers] Diogenes "The Cynic"
(BC, c412-323) Diogenes was chief among the school known as the cynics , though possibly not representative of it [Diogenes "carried the principles of the sect to an extreme of asceticism." ( OED .)]. It was said of Diogenes that throughout his life he "searched with a lantern in the daylight for an honest man." And though Diogenes apparently did not find an honest man, he had, in the process, "exposed the vanity and selfishness of man." ( Chambers The sect, known as the cynics, was founded by Antisthenes (444-370 BC), a pupil of Socrates ; it was "marked by an ostentatious contempt for ease, wealth, and the enjoyments of life." Diogenes was a pupil of Antisthenes. Diogenes, on coming to Athens from his native lands, Sinope, came as "a rake and spendthrift." After following under the spell of Antisthenes, Diogenes "became at once an austere ascetic, his clothing of the coarsest, his food the plainest, and his bed the bare ground. At length he found himself a permanent residence in a tub." (The meaning of cynicism today is to be found in the OED . "A person disposed to rail or find fault; now usually: One who shows a disposition to disbelieve in the sincerity or goodness of human motives and actions, and is wont to express this by sneers and sarcasms; a sneering fault-finder." The image of a cynic that has come to us is that of a dog.)

Diogenes of Apollonia
Diogenes (6th c. BCE) was a native of Apollonia in Crete. He was a pupil of Anaximenes and contemporary with Anaxagoras. Schleiermecher, however, affirms, from the internal evidence of the fragments of the two philosophers, that Diogenes preceded Anaxagoras. But Diogenes might have written before Anaxagoras and yet have been his junior, as we know was the case with Empedocles. Diogenes followed Anaximines in making air the primal element of all things; but he carried his views further, and regarded the universe as issuing from an intelligent principle, by which it was at once vivified and ordered, a rational as well as sensitive soul, but still without recognizing any distinction between matter and mind. Diogenes wrote several books on Cosmology  Peri Phuseos

Why is it called Diogenite?
Diogenes of Apollonia

Diogenite is one of the rarest meteorite petrologic classifications arriving arriving on Earth.
This material is apparently from the 4-Vesta parent body or some precursor or ejecta from it. The derivation of the term "diogenite" however, is somewhat different: from Diogenes of Apollonia, the ancient Greek philosopher born in Crete. Diogenes has the distinction of being the first person in known recorded history to have correctly postulated that "invisible stones" in the heavens ocassionally fell to earth as fireballs. Diogenes' thought was heavily influenced by Anaxagoras of Clazomenae, who was of the famed Ionian school, and born approximately in 500 B.C., whereas Diogenes was probably 20-30 years his junior.
Thus, to best understand ancient science of meteorites, first it is helpful to study Diogenes of Apollonia's mentor, the philosopher and Cosmologist Anaxagoras of Clazomenae:
Among the many startling correct predictions of the genius of Anaxagoras, are the following astronomical hypotheses: Anaxagoras's Correct Predictions

    Mentioned by Plato The writings attributed to Hippocrates apparently were collected at Cos from early scientific observations by Hippocrates and other physicians of his era. The Hippocratic Oath has had a tremendous influence on the ethics of medical practice from that day to this. Although Hippocrates criticized traditional beliefs that the gods cause illnesses, the oath begins by swearing to the gods of health. In the Hippocratic oath physicians promise to benefit patients and abstain from whatever is harmful, to give no deadly medicine nor give a woman a pessary to induce an abortion. In entering homes to benefit the sick they must abstain from any voluntary mischief including seduction. Hippocrates recommended that physicians study nature and the whole subject of medicine that shows what people are in relation to food and drink and other occupations with the effects of each. He noted that large quantities of undiluted wine make one feeble, although he occasionally prescribed some wine. General rules often have exceptions. Cheese, for example, is not equally injurious to everyone. The physician should know the effects of fasting or eating various amounts or drinking soups, and so on. His most famous aphorism is the very first one: Life is short, and art long;
