We now proceed to the application or illustration of the general principles laid down in the three first sections, which continues to the end of the chapter; τούτων δὲ κειμένων κ.τ.λ. Application of the two topics of ‘consequents’, ἅμα and ὕστερον ἀκολουθεῖν: the receipt of all good things is an instance of the latter, because it is followed by the possession of good things; and the loss or riddance of evil things, which is accompanied simultaneously by the relief from what is bad, exemplifies the former. This latter conclusion rests upon the principle, here understood, but stated in § 18, τὸ ἐναντίον κακόν, τοῦτ᾽ ἀγαθόν. Comp. also Top. Γ 2, 117 b 2, on λήψεις and ἀποβολαί.
