Headword: *(ws e)/pos ei)pei=n
Adler number: omega,227
Translated headword: in a nutshell; so to speak
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] as it appears, and as to say in a word. *(ws e)/pos ei)pei=n -- this is arranged in the ancient writers also as w(s ei)pei=n e)/pos and w(s e)/pos fa/nai and w(s fa/nai e)/pos. It is also expressed with one word, as w(s fa/nai and w(s ei)pei=n. All these have the same meaning.[1]
Elsewhere Aristotle says w(s tu/pw| perilabei=n ["as to include in outline"]: he has said this, because it is not possible defining accurately to call those premises which relate to choice and avoidance ethical, but those which relate to truth and knowledge natural.[2]
