Stoicism & Philosophy

The question is whether or not that sort of scholar is teaching virtue. For if he is not, he will not even be imparting it incidentally. If he is teaching it he is a philosopher. If you really want to know how far these persons are from the position of being moral teachers, observe the absence of connexion between all things they study.

Letters from a Stoic, by Seneca, translated by Robin Campbell.
