Diogenes in the Marketplace > Babette Babich


A most joyous thing to read for an old anarchocynic like myself…

But ‘know thyself” works dialectically in an extraordinary way to make such sundering readings redundant: “for Thales, knowledge of the heavens and self-investigation could proceed directly parallel to each other.” (537)

(Peter) Sloterdijk ends here in a fashion both Heideggerian and kynical, precisely in Diogenes’ spirit.
