The quest for self-knowledge

The Philosophers' Magazine 56 (56):75-80 (2012)
It is hard to believe that the ancient philosophers were as rationally consistent in word and deed as they appear in the surviving lore about their lives. The myths are certainly charming – but they also make Socrates, Plato, and Diogenes the Cynic feel alien, remote, more like polished marble statues than fallible creatures of flesh and blood
