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". The objective of Cynicicsm was self-sufficiency ("autarkeia") and the cynic virtues were the qualities through which freedom was attained. The most important virture was callousness or apathy, which had to be attained through training. Another virtue was ruggedness or endurance. The lower animals were to be emulated insofar as they were independent of clothing, shelter and the artificial preparation of food. Cynics sought to disregard laws, customs, conventions, public opinion, reputation, honor and dishonor. The Greek satirist Lucian represents a Cynic as saying: "Scruple not to perform the deeds of darkness in broad daylight. Select your love adventures with a view to public entertainment."

Diogenes of Sinope (4th cn. BCE.)
Diogenes was a Cynic philosopher of Sinope. His father, Icesias, a banker, was convicted of debasing the public coin, and was obliged to leave the country; or, according to another account, his father and himself were charged with this offense, and the former was thrown into prison, while the son escaped and went to Athens. Here he attached himself, as a disciple, to Antisthenes, who was at the head of the Cynics. Antisthenes at first refused to admit him into his house and even struck him with a stick. Diogenes calmly bore the rebuke and said, "Strike me, Antisthenes, but you will never find a stick sufficiently hard to remove me from your presence, while you speak anything worth hearing." The philosopher was so much pleased with this reply that he at once admitted him among his scholars. Diogenes fully adopted the principles and character of his master. Renouncing every other object of ambition, he distinguished himself by his contempt of riches and honors and by his invectives against luxury. He wore a coarse cloak, carried a wallet and a staff, made the porticoes and other public places his habitation, and depended upon casual contributions for his daily bread. He asked a friend to procure him a cell to live in; when there was a delay, he took up abode in a pithos , or large tub, in the Metroum. It is probable, however, that this was only a temporary expression of indignation and contempt, and that he did not make it the settled place of his residence. This famous "tub" is indeed celebrated by Juvenal; it is also ridiculed by Lucian and mentioned by Seneca. But no notice is taken of this by other ancient writers who have mentioned this philosopher.

3. Diogenes Laertius [Internet Encyclopedia Of Philosophy]
Concise article on this ancient biographer.
Diogenes Laertius (3rd cn. 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

Diogenes: reliable ORF-finding in short genomic sequences
About Diogenes
Diogenes is an ORF-finding code developed for use in high-throughput operations. It targets short genomic sequences, searching for and reporting likely protein-encoding regions. It does not attempt to replicate standard gene-finding software, but rather complements them in the cases they are the weakest: dealing with short sequences on the order of 300 to 800 bp. Software

How it works
Diogenes operates on your sequences in the following way:
  • It identifies ORF candidates in all six reading frames It assigns measures of coding potential to each candidate region and then A decision is made if the potential is high enough to report as a likely protein encoding region. If it is, a report is made.
Coding potential is measured using statistics gathered from organism-specific training sets.
A little more detail
Prediction of protein-encoding regions in Diogenes is a three-step procedure. In the first step, stretches of sequence without stop codons are located in all six reading frames; these become ORF candidates to investigate in the next step. In this second step, organism-specific hexamer statistics are used to identify a maximum likelihood estimate of the protein-encoding portion of the ORF candidate.

Greek Philosopher
Diogenes was born at Sinope, in Asia Minor. Forced into exile from Sinope he went eventually to Athens, where he was seen wandering the streets in broad daylight with a lantern saerching for an honest man. Diogenes was an exponent of Cynicism, which called for a repudiation of most human convention and complete independence of mind and spirit. He maintained that a man should be free of all material things. He carried this view to extremes in his own life. He used a tub for shelter and walked the streets barefoot. When Alexander the Great came to see Diogenes, who was sunning himself, the world conquerer said: 'Ask any favour you wish' Diogenes replied : 'Then I would have you stand from me and the sun'.

Diogenes was probably born in 412 B.C. in the Greek colony of Sinope, on the Black Sea. After coming to Athens he adopted the philosophy of the Cynics and became the most famous philosopher of that school. He lived in accordance with the teaching of their belief that a man, in order to attain wisdom and virtue, must be independent of himself, of others, and of the acquisition of fortune. They further believed that it was necessary to give up all the pleasures of life which stand in the way of self mastery. According to that tradition he got rid of all his possessions except a cloak and purse and wooden bowl and lived in a tub or large earthenware jar. Many legends have come down to us relating to his eccentricity. it is said that he walked the streets of Athens barefoot, wearing a long beard and carrying a stick. On occasion he was seen there carrying a lantern during daytime; his explanation being that he was searching for an honest man. The philosopher died in 323 B.C. The original from which this terra cotta bust was fashioned was probably made in the century following Diogenes' death. It is an idealized but life-like portrayal of a wise and noble man.

From Lives of the Philosophers, translated by C.D. Yonge.
I. CRATES was a Theban by birth, and the son of Ascondus. He also was one of the eminent disciples of the Cynic. But Hippobotus asserts that he was not a pupil of Diogenes, but of Bryson the Achaean. II. There are the following sportive lines of his quoted: The waves surround vain Peres' fruitful soil,
And fertile acres crown the sea-born isle;
Land which no parasite e'er dares invade,
Or lewd seducer of a hapless maid;
It bears figs, bread, thyme, garlic's savoury charms,
Gifts which ne'er tempt men to detested arms,
They'd rather fight for gold than glory's dreams. There is also an account-book of his much spoken of, which is drawn up in such terms as these:- Put down the cook for minas half a score,
Put down the doctor for a drachma more:
Five talents to the flatterer; some smoke
To the adviser, an obol and a cloak
For the philosopher; for the willing nymph, A talent . . . . He was also nicknamed Door-opener, because he used to enter every house and give the inmates advice. These lines, too, are his:
