Davidelfín Autumn/Winter 2011 “Diogenes Syndrome”

Arek Saturday, March 12, 2011
The Diogenes syndrome, which can also be called senile squalor syndrome, was noted in 1966 as a disorder that is characterized by self-neglect, anti-social behavior, hoarding, and other such compulsions

The disorder derived its name from the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope (modern-day Turkey)—a Cynic and minimalist.

Diogenes was bold character, who never feared going against the grain or attacking corruption.

He finally moved to the big metropolis of Athens to defy the city-state system, advocating the return to the simplicity of nature.

His name has since resurfaced throughout the millennia in literature, art, and now fashion!
