Lives of eminent philosophers by Diogenes( Book )

24 editions published between 1925 and 2000 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This rich compendium on the lives and doctrines of philosophers ranges over three centuries, from Thales to Epicurus (to whom the whole tenth book is devoted); 45 important figures are portrayed. Diogenes Laertius carefully compiled his information from hundreds of sources and enriches his accounts with numerous quotations. Diogenes Laertius lived probably in the earlier half of the 3rd century CE, his ancestry and birthplace being unknown. His history, in ten books, is divided unscientifically into two 'Successions' or sections: 'Ionian' from Anaximander to Theophrastus and Chrysippus, including the Socratic schools; 'Italian' from Pythagoras to Epicurus, including the Eleatics and sceptics. It is a very valuable collection of quotations and facts."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The Cynic philosophers : from Diogenes to Julian by Julian Of Norwich( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From around 500 BC, the Cynic philosophers sought to cure humanity of greed and vice, guaranteeing happiness through freedom of speech, poverty, self-sufficiency and physical hardiness. In this collection of writings from Diogenes to the Roman emperor Julian, the history and experiences of the Cynic philosophers are explored

Lives of the eminent philosophers by Diogenes Laertius( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2020 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Very little is known about Diogenes Laertius, despite the fact he wrote some of the most influential accounts of the lives of the West's best known philosophers. His mention of Sextus Empiricus means he lived after the 3rd century A.D., while Sopater quoted him in the 6th century. For that reason, historians believe he lived in the middle of the 4th century. In the ancient manuscripts of his work, he is invariably referred to as 'Laertius Diogenes, ' thus giving the author his name. It's unclear what the origin of his name is either, but his Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers was written in Greek and professes to give an account of the lives and sayings of the Greek philosophers. The Lives has been one of the chief accounts of the philosophers' lives, partly because other documents no longer exist, leaving Laertius as one of the few comprehensive accounts available. Even still, it's not clear that Laertius' entire work survived the Middle Ages; 14th century discussions of his work suggest there was a lot more than currently exists today. Regardless, the Lives are one of the best ways for today's readers to understand the lives of famous ancient philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Xenophon, and over 70 others."--Book cover

Lives of eminent philosophers : an edited translation by Diogenes Laertius( )

7 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneering work in the history of philosophy, the ancient text of the Lives presents engaging portraits of nearly a hundred Greek philosophers. It blends biography with bibliography and surveys of leading theories, peppered with punchy anecdotes, pithy maxims, and even snatches of poetry, much of it by the philosophers themselves. The work presents a systematic genealogy of Greek philosophy from its origins in the sixth century BCE to its flowering in Plato's Academy and the Hellenistic schools. In this fully up-to-date and accessible translation, based on the most accurate texts and the latest advances in scholarship, Stephen White provides a valuable resource for students and scholars of ancient philosophy. Highlights include extended treatment of the 'seven Sages' (Book 1), Socrates and his Socratic followers (Book 2), Plato (Book 3), Aristotle and his school (Book 5), Diogenes the Cynic (Book 6), Stoicism (Book 7), Pythagoreans (Book 8), Pyrrhonian skepticism (Book 9), and Epicureanism (Book 10)"--
