Chapter Summary

In her study of the origins of Stoic determinism, Priscilla Sakezles investigates the action theories of Aristotle and the Stoics and discovers important similarities between the two. She claims this strongly suggests that Aristotle had some influence on the early Stoics, primarily on Chrysippus. Sakezles' paper is part of a larger project to trace the Aristotelian thread of influence on Stoic compatibilism. In these comments the author focuses on her discussion of Aristotle's EN III 5. First, she argues that EN III 5 does not offer as strong support as do other passages for the claim that Aristotle and the Stoics have similar action theories. Second, the author raises F. H. Sandbach's alternative explanation for the Stoic theory of physiology and asks why we should accept Sakezles' explanation over Sandbach's.

Keywords: Aristotle; F. H. Sandbach; Priscilla Sakezles; Stoic determinism
