I wanted to check out these cheaper paperback editions (compared to the Loeb editions), since I use Vol 2 in classes sometimes. I've made it through Vol 1 and half way into Vol 2. Doxography is delightful.

Een geleerd werk over de bekendste Griekse filosofen. Het leest niet constant prettig, maar is enorm interessant als je de filosofie een warm hart toedraagt.

Es un compendio bastante interesante que contiene de manera anecdótica la descripción de la vida y obra de varios filósofos de la antigua grecia, incluyendo los siete sabios y los más populares de las escuelas platónica, peripatética y cínica, dedicando enteras secciones a los populares como Sócrates, Platón y Epícuro. Creo que me servirá de referencia para cuando lea El Mundo de Sofía.

Diogenes Laertius (pron.: /daɪˈɒdʒɨniːz leɪˈɜrtiːz/; Greek: Διογένης Λαέρτιος, Diogenēs Laertios; fl. c. 3rd century CE) was a biographer of the Greek philosophers. Nothing is known about his life, but his surviving Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers is a principal source for the history of Greek philosophy.
