The Stoic Model

The Stoic Model

(p.284) 7 The Stoic Model
The Continuous and the Discrete

Michael J. White

Oxford University Press

This chapter pursues a more radical line of interpretation by developing some hypothetical theses concerning the Stoic analysis of the physical world. This approach explores some conceptual alternatives to the Aristotelian and quantum models of spatial magnitude, time, and motion. The first section explores the Stoic removal of limit entities from the physical world, which results in a sort of intuitive continuity of to holon, the entire physical cosmos. The second section considers the doctrine of locomotion athroōs.

Keywords:   Stoic model, limit entities, athroōs, Stoics, locomotion
