    The Kosmopolis Over the Kallipolis.Julie Piering - 2021 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 25 (2):381-399.
    When the Cynic philosopher, Diogenes of Sinope, coins the term ‘cosmopolitan,’ he invites an expansive understanding of the ethical and political commitments one should endeavor to challenge and uphold. Whereas the politics of the day privileged one’s status and role in the polis as foundational for rights, entitlements, duties, and allegiances, the cosmopolitan perspective highlights the arbitrary nature of political boundaries and benefits.

    Diogenes of Sinope.Julie Piering - 2021 - The Philosophers' Magazine 92:92-98.
    As the illustrious Roman scholars Varro and Cicero reflect on the ethical turn in Greek philosophy, they rightly focus on Socrates, observing that he was the first to draw philosophy down from the heavens, placing her in the cities of men, so that she might inquire about life and morality.

Whereas Socrates identifies as a gadfly, Diogenes is a dog, and with (...)
