ἰδίᾳ διὰ ἡμῶν: would lead us to expect as a contrast κοινῇ μετὰ τῶν διδασκάλων. But κοινῇ is omitted as self-evident, while ἰδίᾳ gives a certain definiteness to διὰ ἡμῶν.

διακειμένων (viz. ἡμῶν): is used absolutely; νοῦν ἐχόντων is to be connected with ἦν as above, 500 a παντὸς ἀνδρός.

οὕτω δέ: correlative with οὕτω μέν. See on 512 a.

ἀνόητον ἦν ἄν: cf. below, e καταγέλαστον ἂν ἦν and ἀνόητον ἂν εἶναι.
