The extracts were intended by Stobaeus for his son Septimius, and were preceded by a letter briefly explaining the purpose of the work and giving a summary of the contents.
It is often untrustworthy: Stobaeus betrays a tendency to confound the dogmas of the early Ionic philosophers, and he occasionally mixes up Platonism with Pythagoreanism.
In all, Stobaeus quotes more than five hundred writers, generally beginning with the poets, and then proceeding to the historians, orators, philosophers and physicians.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 95.12.08
The nub of the issue is the material preserved by Stobaeus in book 2, chapter 7 of his massive anthology.
Because a paragraph from C is quoted elsewhere in Stobaeus (4.39.28) as being from the Epitome of Didymus, it is reasonable to assume that all of C, the Peripatetic ethical doxography, derives from the Epitome of Didymus.
But the similarities between B and C are such that it is reasonable (though far from certain) to assume that B came from the same source.

 J.R. Ritman Library - Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica
Ménard is the first to place the hermetic texts in the perspective of the study of comparative religions, using insights obtained from the still nascent discipline of Egyptology and the study of Hellenistic mystery religions.
In this context the editor announces the translation, by way of addendum, of Korè kosmou, the long fragment from Stobaeus' anthology, of which both the original Greek text and the Latin translation were included in Patrizi's edition.
Nock argues that Stobaeus did not know the Corpus Hermeticum in its present order; at any rate there is no mention of it in his anthology.

I used the Corpus Hermeticum, the Asclepius, the Hermetic texts from the Nag Hammadi library, the Stobaeus and Tertulianus fragments and De Castigatione Animae.
However the Stobaeus fragments speak quite a bit about the soul ('pneuma'), the larger texts deal more with the mind in man. Its relation with the divine Mind for example.
Less strong is one Stobaeus fragment II A (Of Thruth) that says: "everything on earth is illusion" (verse 3).

The principal is the large portion of the Hymn to Zeus (http://www.utexas.edu/courses/citylife/readings/cleanthes_hymn.html) which has been preserved in Stobaeus.
He originated a new theory as to the individual existence of the human soul; he held that the degree of its vitality after death depends upon the degree of its vitality in this life.
The principal fragments of Cleanthes's works are contained in Diogenes Laertius and Stobaeus; some may be found in Cicero and Seneca.

In Canoe Brook Country Club's festively decorated Vista Room, Stobaeus greeted 52 of her classmates in her high school era "beer jacket," a cotton canvas coat adorned with athletic letters, awards, and the faded signatures of childhood friends.
The jacket was specially cleaned for the event but sure didn't need letting out, since Stobaeus looks as though she can swing a tennis racket every bit as well as she did during her days as a student athlete.
But amidst the horrors of the war though, she also met her husband, a junior officer with whom she was not allowed to fraternize.

Stobaeus as a rule quotes verbatim, but has a different systematic lay-out.
The Anthology, moreover, has been much abridged and damaged in the course of transmission, so in a number of cases Stobaean parallels for ps-Plutarch are no longer extant.

 Philosophy 143 Lecture Notes: Stoic Ethics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Yet the same passage from Stobaeus explains Zeno's meaning as "living according to a single and consistent rational principle, since those who live in conflict are unhappy." So if there is a completion to the predicate "in agreement," it would be "with a single rational principle," as opposed to "with nature," as Cleanthes stated.
There is a great difference between these two, for the later Stoics clearly believed that there is a specific rational principle with which one should live in agreement, namely, the rational principle that governs the cosmos.
Any virtues which are not intellectual "crafts," such as health of the soul, are capabilities which exist as the result of practice, and thus are dependent upon or "supervene" on the "intellectual" virtues.

FLORHAM PARK -- Officials are considering whether to sell three borough-owned wooded parcels for the development of a single home on each property -- with some of the proceeds going into the borough's fund for open space acquisition.
The three parcels, including a small tract on Edgewood Drive that is part of Stobaeus Woods, all are in residential neighborhoods and are not being considered for commercial development, Mayor Frank D. Tinari said at Tuesday's council meeting.
An Edgewood resident, Scott Eveland -- who said he had collected more than 250 signatures on a petition to "Save Stobaeus Woods" -- said he would oppose selling off any open space even if only a single parcel might be involved.
