*)antepixeirei=n occurs in Aristotle;[1] a)ntepixeirei=n is not to bring an objection to things that are being said, but to attempt to infer in reply through other [arguments] syllogistically, that what is being shown [is] not true. For the argument against the demonstration that the soul [is] not deathless, because its form is implicated in matter, and nothing which has a form implicated in matter is separable from that material: this was not an objection, but an attempt to show in reply through other [arguments] that [the soul] is eternal, by accepting that learning [is] recollection, or that [the soul is] self-moved; he is making a counter-argument, not objecting.
