VII. To Hermodorus Part 2 (p. 205-207)
This epistle seems to touch upon some Cynic themes. Everything in human civilization is contrary to nature. At all times injustice is the rule and inspiration for all manner of human action. Heraclitus cannot help but weep in the face of such an atrocity.
Generally, I’m surprised to find these Heraclitus letters in the volume, they seem to be an outlier. But this one seems more firmly in the vein of “City of Pera.”
This is part of the Cynic Epistles Reading Plan.
