Questions about the two philosophies abound already if each is considered in its own right; and even if one grants a certain degree of diachronic coherence to Kant’s theory, and assume a simplified version of Stoicism, determining the philosophical relations between the two remains a multi-faceted and complex task. Kant’s own reception of Stoicism involves both acknowledgment of its merits and attempts at distancing himself from it. This is further complicated by the fact that Kant rarely discussed specific passages from Stoic texts, and that his knowledge of Stoicism is thought to have come mainly from reading Roman Stoics (Cicero and Seneca).
