- a. - Alt. of Cynical
- n. - One of a sect or school of philosophers founded by
Antisthenes, and of whom Diogenes was a disciple. The first Cynics were
noted for austere lives and their scorn for social customs and current
philosophical opinions. Hence the term Cynic symbolized, in the popular
judgment, moroseness, and contempt for the views of others.
- n. - One who holds views resembling those of the Cynics; a
snarler; a misanthrope; particularly, a person who believes that human
conduct is directed, either consciously or unconsciously, wholly by
self-interest or self-indulgence, and that appearances to the contrary
are superficial and untrustworthy.
