548, Spinoza IVP54. Aptly quoted as such by Rutherford (1999), 457. Although James (1993), 306, mentions Spinoza’s “adamant opposition to teleological explanation,” she seems to me to overlook the great distance this creates between him and the Stoics’ unqualified commitment to providence and God’s special concern for human beings. Cf. 245–52. For Lipsius’ life and an outline of his works on Stoicism, see Saunders (1955).

That is precisely what Becker (1998) has bravely tried to do (see n.
