8 The assumption of Cicero as the spokesman of the Stoic tradition might be misleading. Some modern interpretations of the Stoics’ inﬂuence on Smith take for granted that Cicero is the main, if not the only source of Stoicism. 6: 4), and while he is undoubtedly a very important source for Stoical thought, his writings are hardly an uncomplicated summary of Stoic ideas, to say nothing of the neoStoicism that deeply inﬂuenced the Scottish context. Cicero adopted but also criticized different aspects of Stoicism.
I would add that if we take the original Greek meaning of eklektikos, her judgment makes more sense in Smith as the verb eklegein means selecting or choosing from what is best. Smith clearly knew what to take and what not to take from the Stoics, as the title and purpose of this essay suggest. As it would be the subject of an ambitious project to fully investigate the overall inﬂuence and implications of Smith’s eclectic position on Stoicism, in this essay I will only concentrate on Smith’s sympathy and self-command and their Stoic sources.
