I'd like to utilize Homines Ludente, Homines Impudente as an epigraph. But I'm not sure whether it conveys a meaning. Thanks for your help!

  • Without context, its difficult to say. What I see is "Men with (someone/something) playing, Men with shameless (something)." It would make sense at a party, maybe, where the man playing is some sort of wacky entertainer.

    Specifically "with" in the sense of "by using", not "accompanied by".

    I suggest rephrasing the question: As the current comments suggest, the phrase means something, but almost certainly not what you (or someone else) intended. You could get a fuller answer if you gave some more context.

  • without a context I could guess the extended meaning as 'To learn, one must be shameless, so that he can create a playground on the subject, try and fail'. Many people can't learn a language because they have the shame to talk in the wrong way for example, meanwhile shameless people do horrible talks but learn the correct way in time

Literally, this means people doing something by using the playing thing, people doing something by using the shameless thing. So yes, it does convey a meaning, but I'm guessing it's not the meaning you're aiming for.

  • If I were bold enough, I'd summarise this answer to the question as "no" (which I agree with).
