On τύχη see Appendix C to Bk. I. Introd.; on αἰτία ἀόριστος see ib. p. 221 seq. ‘Illos eventus qui a causa quam nemo facile definiat oriuntur ad fortunam referimus. Arist. Phys. II 4, 196 b 6, εἰσὶ δέ τινες οἷς δοκεῖ εἶναι αἰτία μὲν τύχη, ἄδηλος δὲ ἀνθρωπίνῃ διανοίᾳ ὡς θεῖόν τι οὖσα καὶ δαιμονιώτερον.’ Schrader. (Schrader quotes this as Aristotle's own definition.)

καὶ (ὅσα) μὴ ἕνεκά του...μήτε τεταγμἐνως] ‘in any fixed, regular, prescribed order’.
