JERIA SOTO, Patricio. DIOGENES OF SINOPE: A REFLECTION ON THE "PROBLEM OF PHILOSOPHICAL LANGUAJE. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2010, n.29, pp.45-54. ISSN 0718-8471. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-84712010000100003.
In this article an attempt is made to show the problem of language and the philosophical practice related to the anecdotes of Diógenes of Sinope. The problem of the relation between language and reality is also studied, specially from a philosophical point of view and its intention of systematizing the real. Finally, the possibility of looking for traces of a way of philosophizing is pursued in Diógenes. In it, showing, seeing and interaction precede and open the way to saying, in order to reproduce the vices of the abstract and universal language of traditional philosophy.
