τὸ πρὸς πολλὰ χρησιμώτερον] Top. Γ 3, 118 b 27, ἔτι διελέσθαι ποσαχῶς τὸ αἱρετὸν λέγεται καὶ τίνων χάριν οἷον τοῦ συμφέροντος τοῦ καλοῦ τοῦ ἡδέος: τὸ γὰρ πρὸς ἅπαντα πρὸς τὰ πλείω χρήσιμον αἱρετώτερον ἂν ὑπάρχοι τοῦ μὴ ὁμοίως. Wealth and health are supposed to be of the highest value because they are serviceable in so many ways; for the support and preservation of mere life, and of a virtuous and happy life (for which they supply the means), also for pleasure and for good and noble actions.
