ἐκεῖνο: refers to ὀφοποιία. The employment of a neuter demonstrative or relative referring to an antecedent in the masculine or feminine adds to the generalness of the conception. Cf. 463 b, 460 e. But ἐν σώματι may have had some influence.

μὲν οὖν: here, as also in ἴσως μὲν οὖν and μὲν οὖν just preceding, οὖν does not denote sequence, but adds force to the statement about to be made in view of what has already been said.

ἐμοί: hints a contrast.
