ito ang pinag kukunan nila ng tubig
at higit sa lahat nakakatulong ito pag ito ay umaapaw
sapagkat nag iiwan ito ng matabang lupa na pwedeng pagtamnan ng mga pananim
Interesting choice of words. I am going to interpret that as meaning the philosopher who I enjoy reading about the most, not the philosopher whose ideas I actually agree with.
In which case, there can be only one answer, I present to you Diogenes,
His philosophy was pretty simple by comparison to other famous philosophers; he believed society and civilisation to be regressive instead, seeking to live in a more natural state free from the shackles of society.
Dogs, on the other hand, he praised greatly believing that their attitude by life by which they live in the moment, never worry and, simply do what pleases were the basis of how one should act.
He basically spent his life trying to mimic this dog-like attitude to life while also mocking greatly the so-called “great philosophers” that he viewed to be at the core of this regressive society.
That may not sound all that extreme, a lot of people believe that we should live more “natural” lives, what makes him so fascinating to read about is quite how far he took these views.
Let’s look at some stories and habits from his life:
He was throughout his life referred to as a κυνικός (kynikos), the word from which we derive “cynic”. The Greek, however, does not mean “cynic” in the modern sense, instead, meaning “dog-like”. Instead of being insulted by this nickname, he instead adopted it voluntarily and, when asked why he was described as such, he just responded that it was because he:
“Fawns upon those who give him anything and barks at those who give him nothing.”
I bet you can’t name another great philosopher who took pride in being called dog-like
