SALLES, Ricardo. Sobre la atribución a Crisipo de una teoría estoica de la responsabilidad moral. Nova tellus [online]. 2005, vol.23, n.2, pp.101-124. ISSN 0185-3058.

This article casts doubt on the thesis that the Stoic author of the theory of moral responsibility reported in Alexander of Aphrodisias, De Fato, 13, and Nemesius of Emesa, De Natura Hominis, 35, is late. In particular, it argues -against an interpretation recently revived by Susanne Bobzien in Determinism and Freedom in Stoic Philosophy- that this author cannot be Philopator (fl. first half of second century A.D.). Bobzien’s arguments in favour of this late attribution are questionable: there is good reason for thinking that the real author of this doctrine is Chrysippus (c. 280-c. 206 B.C), the third head of the Stoic school.

Keywords : alejandro-de-afrodisia; crisipo; estoicismo; filópator; moral; nemesio-de-emesa; responsabilidad; teoría.
