τῶν μὲν ἀγαθῶν -- ἑκουσίως. See IV 438 A note ἢ οὐ -- εἶναι. It is necessary expressly to equate ἀληθεύειν with ἀληθὴς δόξα, because ordinarily it means to speak rather than to think what is true. Cf. II 382 A. Hartman approves of Ast for bracketing the words “quod argumentationem turbant,” but the contrary is true.
