Образы Сократа у Диогена Лаэртского и Пьера Адо
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.
