K. Reinhardt, Kosmos und Sympathie, p. 52. 2. DIE STELLUNG PLUTARCHS 1M PLA TONISMUS SEINER ZEIT HEINRICH DORRIE A (r) Diesen Seiten ist die Aufgabe gestellt, einige der Besonderheiten, durch die sieh Plutarch von den Platonikern seines Jahrhunderts abhebt, darzustellen. Wenn diese Frage bisher kaum in Angriff genommen wurde, so liegt das daran, dass die herkommliche Methode sachlicher Vergleiehe nieht zu schliissigen Antworten fiihrt. Weder kann Plutarchs Philosophie von einem sonst wohl bekannten Lehrer hergeleitet werden 1 noch kann ein System Plutarchs Linie fiir Linie mit einem System anderer Platoniker vergleiehen werden.
Wie zu erwarten, gibt es auch stoische Formulierungen. Herausgegriffen seien die, die auf Poseidonios zuriickgehen konnen, ohne das Problem zu beruhren, ob Poseidonios in einer Sonderschrift einige Fragen des platonischen Timaeus behandelt hat. Dass er sie behandelt hat, ist aus dem Zitat bei Sextus Emp. Math. 7. 93, aus Plutarch Pracr. an. I023b, und aus der genannten Stelle bei Theo von Smyrna 103. 16 ff. klar. Da Eudor schon Poseidonios benutzt hat (vgl. Parusia, p. ), ist moglich, dass wenigstens einige der poseidoniosverdachtigen Satze uber Eudors Timaeuskommentar in den Philo hineingekommen sind.
