First & Only Übermensch

Diogenes of Sinope was an iconoclast, contrarian, shit-stirrer, square peg, misfit, early Cynic philosopher, and perhaps a bit of a nut. He certainly the sort of Free Spirit still celebrated in the West where Hellenistic ideas changed the way people think and talk about things and what they value and thus essentially how they live, especially since the Renaissance, and which continues to this day.

*** Übermensch means "super-man" in German and refers to a superlative man concept conceived by Nietzsche.
