The distance between the two essays - "The Socrates" by Pierre Hadot and "On the life teachings and sayings of famous philosophers" by Diogenes Laertius – amounts in more than one and a half thousand years. XX century philosophy historian Pierre Hadot represented Socrates as the typical exemplification of ancient philosophy. His approach explained the ancient philosophy primarily as a way of living, as a constant spiritual exercise for the sake of revelation and no way the theoretical doctrine. Philosophy historian of Hellenistic period Laertius considers to keep up with this attitude due to his lifetime and sphere of interest. In fact, he represents the ancient philosophy himself. Present analysis depicts the Hadot and Laertius representations of Socrates as a philosopher and deals with revealing of their similarities.
The present article continues the investigation of the Soqotri verbal system undertaken by the Russian-Soqotri fieldwork team. The article focuses on the so-called “weak” and “geminated” roots in the basic stem. The investigation is based on the analysis of full paradigms (perfect, imperfect and jussive) of more than 170 “weak” and “geminated” Soqotri verbs.
