What life lessons can we learn from the philosophy of Diogenes the Cynic? Live simply and tolerate no bullshit is probably the best summary possible. In this episode we look at the living philosophy of Diogenes of Sinope and see what we might learn and apply in our own lives. He is one of the most radical philosophers in the history of philosophy. For Diogenes philosophy was simple and it only had to be lived. He lived in an upturned wine cask in the agora of Ancient Athens. He is one of the most entertaining characters in Ancient Greek philosophy. He was contemporaneous with Alexander the Great and Plato and had amusing interactions with each that we’ll be exploring in this episode.
