Sample text

However, the Stoics’ maxim of living in accordance with nature assumes a summum bonum, which is beyond this world. This also requires that things in this life (including life itself)11 are indifferent to us. Related to the latter, the Stoics developed the famous concept of apatheia. This concept demands not only complete indifference to events in this world, but also a rational acceptance of whatever destiny may hold: If I am going to sail, says Epictetus, I chuse the best ship and the best pilot, and I wait for the fairest weather that my circumstances and duty will allow.

Smith owned two editions of Cocceius’s commentary on Grotius’s de iure belli ac pacis. I could not use them in writing the present article, but I used a 1751 Swiss edition where the commentaries of Cocceius the father, and some observations of his son Samuel, are added at the end of each chapter of the de iure, whereas Gronovius’s and Grotius’s observations are collected in the footnotes. 3 Cf. also Lessius (1612: 18): si distributor aliquem fraudaverit minus dando quam postulabat eius conditio, faciet ei iniuriam (‘if the distributor cheats someone by giving him less than his status requires, he will have wronged him’).

In both cases a thunderbolt is in his hand. An attempt to interpret the writing had already been made by Eduard Holtenus in 1699, in a letter to the eminent philologist Johann Georg Graevius. Burman reproduces the letter (pp. 216–22) in order to discuss it further. Holtenus asserts that scholars connected the adjective kataibatou3 with thunder, thus translating Jovis Fulminantis or, by analogy with a coin of Diocletian, Fulguratoris. The brief survey (p. 218), which also mentions a Latin epithet with a similar meaning, taken from Roman augural language (Elicius, that descends in the thunderbolt, Fulgurator) as a counterpart of the Greek kataibates, concludes with a fundamental objection raised by Holtenus: how can we consider the god to be in the act of hurling a thunderbolt if he is comfortably seated?
