[35] Apollodorus says the same thing when he states that a question must either lie in things external,1 which give play to conjecture, or in our own opinions: the former he calls πραγματικός the latter περὶ ἐννοίας The same is said by those who employ the terms ἀπροληπτὸς2 and προληπτικός, that is to say doubtful and presumptive, by this latter term meaning those facts which are beyond a doubt.

1 e.g. circumstantial evidence.

2 ἀπροληπτός lit. = unpresumed.
