Chrysippus

Chrysippus of Soli (279-207 BC) was Cleanthes's pupil and eventual successor to the head of the stoic philosophy.

A prolific writer and debater, Chrysippus would often take both sides of an argument. Of his over 700 written works, none survive, save a few fragments embedded in the works of later authors.


In Greek mythology, Chrysippus was the son of Pelops and Axioche. He was killed by Thyestes and Atreus, his step-brothers.
