πλὴν τοῦτο [φιλοσοφίας]. φιλοσοφίας is most probably corrupt: if retained, it would be better to construe it as genit. of object (“the reproaches levelled against philosophy”) than as genit. of subject or origin (as Ast, Stallb., Kreyenbühl), for which we should expect rather φιλοσόφων. The simplest and best remedy is, with Schleiermacher, to eject φιλοσοφίας as a gloss on the misreading τούτου. For ὄνειδος, cp. Rep. 347 B τὸ φιλότιμόν τε καὶ φιλάργυρον εἶναι ὄνειδος λέγεται. For καρποῦσθαι, in malam partem, cp. Rep. 579 C; Eur. Hipp. 1427 κ. πένθη. In their translations, Jowett follows Ast, but Zeller adopts Schl.'s excision.

κοιμήσεις ἐπὶ θύραις. Cp. 203 D; Ov. A. A. II. 238frigidus et nuda saepe iacebis humo” : Hor. C. III. 10. 2 asperas | porrectum ante fores, etc. For the other love-symptoms cp. also Xen. Cyrop. v. 1. 12.
