Chronologically it precedes the Ramayana.

Verse 4.21.28

विज्ञानवादिनो बुद्ध्या स्फुरत्स्वभ्रमपूरया ।
मुक्तिः शमदमोपेता निर्णीय परिकल्पिता ॥ २८ ॥

vijñānavādino buddhyā sphuratsvabhramapūrayā |
muktiḥ śamadamopetā nirṇīya parikalpitā || 28 ||

The Vijnanavadi philosophers also, have ascertained and upheld peace and self-government as the leaders to liberation, but this too is an effusion of their erroneous understandings.
