... μάθησις: see on 343 b, l. 47. Here Socrates finds his doctrine, that virtue is knowledge.

κακὸς δὲ κακῶς: (sc. πράξας). Socrates follows the sense, repeating the words of the poet in order to explain them. So he says also τὸ γέρας 344 c, while Simonides (341 e) has γέρας, and ἐξαρκεῖ ἄν 346 d for ἐξαρκεῖ ὃς ἄν 346 c.

κακῶς πράξαντες: not attrib. of ἰατροί, which would require πράττοντες, and ὅστις γάρ instead of ὅστις δέ following, but circumstantial partic. of means with ἂν γενοίμεθα.
