Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ...Busse (De praesidiis Aristotelis Politica emendandi, p. 17 sqq.), and Broughton, in his edition of PoL 1, 3, and 4 (7), take -u-n to be used in airijr npos uvrifr tlyai rtjr 6ia-iv as it is used in such phrases as -'-- ttvai, Kara Touto ttvat (Plato, Protag. 317 A), tIt SCua/uw turn (Polit 300 C), and the like, and translate these words 'so far as concerns the position of the city in relation to itself, ' but the objection to this view is that no instance is produced of the use of turn in this sense in combination with a similar collection of words.

Coray and Bekk. bracket firm, while Bonitz (Ind. 375 b 8) places a query after Kartmrn&"1-For Susemihl's view see his note in Sus.4 Richards suggests that Kot tlxi should be read in place of -ararvyxiifir, translating ' but we should pray that the position of the city in relation to itself may be the best possible, ' etc If, however, m tixh the original reading, we should expect it to be corrupted into -ararvx-I- rather than urrarvyxayt," and perhaps also to stand nearer in the sentence to -!k- than it does.
