Vetting Status: high
He who calls blending [kra=sis] the genus of mixing [mi/cis] is mistaken; for genus places [something] inside the species. In fact, mixing is something broader than blending, for if something is blended it is also mixed, but not everything which is mixed is blended. Certainly, the mixture of dry things is not a blending.[1] Mixing is different from blending.

[1] From Alexander of Aphrodisias, Commentaries on Aristotle’s Topics 315.27-316, 1 (cf. Topics 122b25). The genus should be inside the species (or the species should be placed under the genus) for, as Aristotle has said a couple of lines before, what takes part in the genus is either the species or the individual (Topics 122b20-21).
