Chapter Summary

The aim of this chapter is to form a clearer view about the place and importance of the idea of particularity in Stoic philosophy, especially particularity as linked with selfhood or individuality. The chapter focuses on two aspects of Stoic theory - or atleast two features of our evidence for Stoic theory - where it has seemed plausible to think that particularity is an important notion in Stoicism. One aspect is Stoic, or more precisely Chrysippean, thinking on the therapy of emotions. The second aspect is perhaps better known. In Book One of Cicero's On Duties, in a section generally regarded as good evidence for the thinking of the second-century century Stoic Panaetius, we find a theory of four role.
