Lives of Eminent Philosophers, vol. 1 by Diogenes Laertius ( - 3rd Cent.), translated by R. D. Hicks (1850 - 1929)
Diogenes Laertius' Lives of Eminent Philosophers provides a wealth information about the lives and teachings of ancient Greek thinkers. Despite the varying reliability of Laertius' accounts, his book has become a principal source for the history of Greek philosophy, since many of the earlier sources on which it was based are no longer extant.
This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections. They are marked in the Magic Window below as Ready for PL.

New to prooflistening? Please read this FAQ.

Level of PL: Standard
Please consider these points during proof-listening and comment on them as appropriate:
  • Does the intro match the one specified in the first post of the project thread (below the Magic Window)?
  • Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time.
  • Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
  • Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
  • Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
  • Does the ending match the one specified in the first post of the project thread?
  • Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file?
