τῶν ὑγιεινῶν καὶ νοσωδῶν. If we carry the analysis less far than Plato, we can still make the added determinants the same by saying that ἰατρικὴ ἐπιστήμη is of ἰατρικὸν μάθημα. But this will not suit with κακή, for ‘bad knowledge’ is not ‘knowledge of bad things’; nor does it—in many cases— apply to desires. Cf. 437 E note

αὐτοῦ οὗπερ -- ἐστίν: i.e. μαθήματος αὐτοῦ. αὐτοῦ is emphatic and contrasted with ποιοῦ τινός.
