Cynicism

(3,324 words)

Author(s): Goulet-Cazé, Marie-Odile (Antony)
(Κυνισμός; Kynismós). [German version] A. Introduction The philosophical protest movement of Cynicism originated in Greece in the 4th cent. BC centred on  Diogenes [14] of Sinope and his students; it existed until the 5th cent. AD. As almost none of the older literature of the Cynics is extant, our knowledge comes mainly from anecdotes and remarks -- the authenticity of which is hard to test -- which however mirror a coherent and uniform philosophy. As early as antiquity the term ‘Cynicism’ was explained through two different etymologies. The first links the movement …

Peregrinus Proteus

Author(s): Goulet-Cazé, Marie-Odile (Antony)
[German version] (Περεγρῖνος Πρωτεύς; Peregrînos Prōteús). Lived c. AD 100-165, born in Parium in Mysia. P. was a philosopher who is known to us primarily through Lucian's (Lucianus [1]) critical, tendentious work 'On the Death of Peregrinus' ( De morte Peregrini). According to Lucian (De morte Peregrini 1), P. himself introduced his byname of Proteus. To the satirist, it was an apposite choice, as like Proteus in the Odyssey, P. underwent numerous transformations (lastly in the fire at his death on a funeral pyre). P. was said to hav…

Cynic philosopher and Alexander historian, pupil of Diogenes [14] of Sinope (Plut. de Alexandri magni fortuna aut virtute 10,331e; Plut. Alexander 65,701c). Ever since antiquity, attempts have been made - certainly incorrectly - to identify him with O. of Aegina, another pupil of Diogenes mentioned in Diog. Laert. 6,75 (cf. 84; see [1] and Philiscus). O. took part in the eastern conquests of Alexander the Great, and was …

AD [3. 31]); author of a commentary on Callimachus' [3] Hekale (fr. 9; 29; 179 Hollis), the use of which can still be detected in the Suda [4. 13-18]. The attribution of an edition of the hymns of Callimachus [5. 78] and of the hypothesis to Sophocles' Antigone and Oedipus in Colonus [6. 17-20] is probable. Likely identical to the S. mentioned by Stephanus of Byzantium s. v. Ἄζιλις. Baumbach, Manuel (Zürich) Bibliography Editions: 1 A. S. Hollis, Callimachus. Hekale, 1990 2 R. P…
