Professor Martin Sirois’ Brown Bag Lecture, “The Birth of the Cynic Movement: Issues at the Crossroad of History, Philosophy, and Biography,” has been rescheduled for Monday, March 5. It will be held in Room H-1013 from 12pm-1pm.
The lecture will survey some of the problems we face in dealing with the origins of Philosophy’s “underdog” in Athens and with his “founding” father, Diogenes the Cynic. With most of our evidence coming from later (often dubious) anecdotes, how can we try to uncover the truth and paint a plausible picture of early Cynicism?
Coffee will be served. All are welcome to attend.
