Philosopher
    (333 BC-264 BC)
    Founder of Stoicism
    Author of 'The Republic'
    He believed that the universe itself was conscious.
    He was a merchant before he was a philosopher, who only discovered philosophy after he read a book that he had stumbled upon after being shipwrecked in Athens.
    He believed that in order for one to be happy, they must resign themselves to fate and never struggle against it.
    His favorite activities were eating figs and lying out in the sun.
    When he was an old man, he could not pay the tax that the Athenians required of resident aliens and was sold into slavery.
    He held that men and women should dress alike.
    He learned to live a happy life without many material possessions.
    His friends bought him out of slavery.
    When he died, the city of Athens paid for him to be buried with a gold crown in an ornate tomb.
    Despite the reputation that later stoics had of being sober, he would often drink wine.
    He wrote his own 'Republic,' in which he described a utopia composed of rational citizens.
    He believed in the equality of the sexes.
    He despised modesty and believed that clothes should often be done without.
    He did not find any problems with masturbation, homosexuality, or prostitution.
