STILPO

Megara
320 B.C.





BIOGRAPHY

A distinguished philosopher who taught as in the Megaric academy, as in Athens. His time of living is only indirectly calculated, by the knowledge that he was contemporary to Demetrius Poliorketes and Ptolemy the Savior ( 3rd – 2nd century BC). He rejected multiplicity of beings acknowledging only one still perfect and complete being, thus rejecting polytheism along. Stilpon thinks that the apathy of the soul is the ultimate possession. None of his writings has been saved.
