f. σύ γε θαρρῶν
: thrown in with emphasis, because what follows in flicts the deepest disgrace, πατάξαι
. With πατάξαι
the repetition in thought of ἔασόν τινα
is the easiest construction. On the common object of the three infs., see on 493 c σοί
τὴν ἄτιμον ταύτην κτἑ.
: says Socrates, with reference to 527 a
and 486 c
f. οὐδὲν γὰρ δεινὸν πείσει
: external rough treatment will not affect the real man.
: refers to ἀσκῶν
, but it is more exactly defined by οὕτω . . . ἀσκήσαντες
: emphatic position. The addition ἐὰν δοκῇ χρῆναι
indicates that they may then find something more important to do.
: cf. 521 d
. This is the answer to Callicles' advice in 484 c
ff. On the other hand, ὁποῖον ἄν τι ὑμῖν δοκῇ
can serve for Polus. Cf. 466 c
: explained by βελτίους κτἑ.
ὡς . . . ἔχειν
: a polite expression which can hardly be misunderstood by those present.
