οὐ τὸν αὐτὸν τρόπον: like St. Paul, Socrates could be ‘all things to all men.’ This variety in his methods is ridiculed by Aristophanes Clouds 478-480.

τοὺς μέν: corresponds to τοὺς δέ in 5.

εἰ δαμασθεῖεν: if they should be broken in.

οὐσῶν: when hounds are meant, κυών is generally grammatically feminine. Cf. iii.11.8.

ἐπιθετικῶν: eager to attack.

ἀχθείσας (ἄγω): the usual term for training hunting dogs.

γίγνεσθαι: note the change from the participle (γιγνομένους) to the inf., permissible from the fact that ἐπιδεικνύειν is a verbum declarandi.

ἀναγώγους δὲ γιγνομένας: but if they should remain untrained, a slight ‘anacoluthon,’ since τὰς μέν preceded.
