Cf. Liu (2009) 263. See Christensen (1962) 86, Mackenzie (1988) 348–51, Liu (2009), whose interpretation that ‘for the Stoics, wisdom is the comprehensive knowledge of all things’ (248) sits uneasily with the dispositional interpretation she offers later on (263–4). This association of wisdom and omniscience is perhaps all too common. g. 43: ut ille sapiens dicatur, qui scit omnia etiam difficilia per certitudinem et causam, ipsum scire propter se quaerens, alios ordinans et persuadens. Cf. Frede (1996) 16–17 (without reference to the evidence), Vogt (2008) 120–6 (who mainly relies on Stobaeus).

61 Adversaries of the Stoics, like the Platonist Plutarch, exploited these accounts by accusing the Stoics of inconsistency. This can easily be explained as an exaggeration. 64 The different ways of presentation are thus anything but an inconsistency: they rather, yet again, reflect the interrelatedness of the parts of philosophy. 2b Ethics and physics Thus far we have discussed interrelatedness of the parts of philosophy in connection with the doctrine that all parts are mixed, in connection with some images, and with the problem of the right order of the parts.

But there are several reasons to consider another meaning here. 65 66 For the debate see, on the one hand, those who assign a role to physics: Long (1970–1), (1989), White (1979), Striker (1991), Cooper (1995), Inwood (1995), Betegh (2003), Vogt (2008), Boeri (2009), Liu (2009), and, on the other hand, those who offer a ‘neo-Aristotelian’ interpretation of the Stoic version of the end, in which cosmic nature plays no role: Engberg-Pedersen (1986), Irwin (1986), 208 n. 4, (1998), Annas (1993), (1995), (2007), Nussbaum (1994), Lukoschus (1999).
