Protagoras thinks it unprofita ble to follow up the idle opinions of ignorant men; see 353 a, l. 75, below.
ὑπὸτῶνἡδονῶνἡττᾶσθαι: is pred. of ὅ (cf. 353 αξ, 354 e, 357 c), but the true character of that which they call ‘being controlled by the passions’ is repeated and appended freely to the rel. clause, καὶοὐπράττεινκτἑ.
