Not illustrated. 1867 edition. Excerpt: ...sake to turn him from his evil ways, it is punishment proper, correction or chastisement. Plato, Gorg. 525. B. c, distinguishes two cases of Tip.(op(a or punishment in general; either for the correction and improvement of the offender rj fleXr/ow yiyveadat /ecu ovlvaaOai; or for example's sake, to deter others from the like offences; rj TrapaSeijfiari To aXXot? ylyveadai, Xv aXXoi oo&We? iracryovTa a av iroarj tyoftovjxevoi ftekTiowi ylyvoovrai. Compare Clem. Alex. Strom. VTI. p. 895, quoted by Gaisford. (c)eo? 8e ov Tip, apeiTac eari yap rj TipLwpia icaicov avTcnrohocrit;' KoXdet p, evroi 7rpo? To ptjaipbov /ecu icoivfi teal ISia Tot? Koa%opLevoi;. There is however a different interpretation of rc/jLcopta which might be applied here, derived from a different division of punishments. This division is referred to by Aulus Gellius, N. A. vi. 14, quoted by Gaisford, and is to this effect. 1 One kind is that which is called vovOeaia, fcoXao-i?, or 7rapaiveTii, when the punishment is applied for the sake of castigation and improvement, &c.: the second is that which is called Tip, apia, and is employed for the maintenance of the dignity and authority of the person offended, lest it should suffer if no notice were taken of the offence; and from this the name itself is supposed to be derived, 'a couservatione honoris'. The third kind is the second of Plato's division, viz. when the punishment is inflicted for an example to others. It is possible, though I think not probable, that Aristotle may have had this signification in view in the distinction of /c6aoi; and Tip, wpia. For the further consideration of 0/3777 we are referred to the treatise on the irdOrj in Bk. n. c. 2. eiriOvfila1, the remaining incentive to action, 18, more
