    Chrysippus is important as the systematizer of Stoic doctrines; and as his thought is characteristic of that school so is it open to the difficulties raised by its philosophy. His theory of knowledge is empirical, yet he appears to hold that some general ideas are innate — albeit as dispositions.   After a long and fertile life of philosophy and as leader of the Stoic school, one day on his way home Chrysippus came across an ass eating figs. He instructed the old woman who lived with him to give the ass some unmixed wine to drink afterwards, and with that he laughed so violently he died.

    Chrysippus also made a lot of effort refuting paradoxes. Paradoxes have been the core of philosophy since the ancient times and Chrysippus became deeply interested in the ‘Liar Paradox.’ It is said that he wrote 23 books on the ‘Liar Paradox’ and 26 books on other paradoxes. Chrysippus krĭs´ĭpəs, c–c BC, Greek Stoic philosopher, b. Soli, Cilicia. He was a disciple of Cleanthes and succeeded him as head of the Academy in Athens. After Zeno, the founder of Stoicism, Chrysippus is considered the most eminent of the school. He systematized Stoicism and reconciled the factions that threatened to split.

    Of all published articles, the following were the most read within the past 12 months. A must read book for anyone interested in the emperor-philosopher in particular, but also in using Stoicism as a practical guide to the art of living. Stoicism — Philosophy as a Way of Life.
