XXXV. To Sopolis, do well (p. 145)
Well. This is an interesting one. Ps-Diogenes begins with a critique of a teacher, and then also of a coach. That moves quite directly into one of his stories of “manual labor,” as it were.
Diogenes’ main point at the beginning is that one should be consistent, and not teach what one doesn’t know. Then, turns around and flouts the cultural nomos, by a fairly forthright discussion of sexual mores.
This is part of the Cynic Epistles Reading Plan.
