Headword: Κατηγορίας ἔχω
Adler number: kappa,1040
Translated headword: I have accusations
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning I am being accused. Demosthenes [in the speech] On the Crown [sc. uses the phrase].[1]
"Accusing them is Kallixenos, a demagogue [and] sykophant."[2]
Amongst philosophers 'category'[3] is said and comes into being either to a greater degree or equally, but never to a lesser degree. It is to a greater degree when the most universal things, among those that are the most particular, are predicated. Now the highest things are the most universal, while the most particular things are those that are subordinated [to them]. A category is a kind of appellative [or common noun] that is said without qualification. there are altogether ten [categories], which are the most general kinds, under which every expression is subsumed: substance, quantity, quality, relation, where, when, acting upon, being-affected, being in a position, having.[4] Of these, substance is what underlies, while the remaining nine [categories exist] in what underlies.
Greek Original:
Κατηγορίας ἔχω: ἀντὶ τοῦ κατηγοροῦμαι. Δημοσθένης Περὶ τοῦ στεφάνου. κατηγορεῖ δὲ αὐτῶν Καλλίξενος δημαγωγός, συκοφάντης. ἡ κατηγορία παρὰ φιλοσόφοις ἢ ἐπὶ πλέον λέγεται καὶ γίνεται ἢ ἐπίσης, ἐπ' ἔλαττον δὲ οὐδέποτε. καὶ ἐπὶ πλέον μέν, ὅτε τὰ καθολικώτερα κατηγοροῦνται τῶν μερικωτάτων. καθολικώτερα οὖν εἰσὶ τὰ ἐπάνω, μερικώτερα δὲ τὰ ὑποκάτω. κατηγορία δέ ἐστιν οἷον προσηγορία τις ἁπλῶς λεγομένη. εἰσὶ δὲ πᾶσαι δέκα, ἤγουν γενικώτατα γένη, ὑφ' ἃς ἀναφέρεται πᾶσα φωνή: οὐσία, ποσόν, ποιόν, πρός τι, ποῦ, πότε, ποιεῖν, πάσχειν, κεῖσθαι, ἔχειν. τούτων ἡ μὲν οὐσία ἐστὶν ὑποκειμένη, αἱ δὲ λοιπαὶ ἐννέα ἐν ὑποκειμένῳ.
Notes:
[1] Demosthenes 18.240. The entry thus far = Photius, Lexicon kappa463.
[2] At the trial of the Arginousai generals in Athens in 406 BCE. The present phrase clearly derives from Xenophon, Hellenica, 1.7.14 (though this present tense should be imperfect, and the categorisations of K. are additions). For the meaning of συκοφάντης , 'false accuser', see sigma 1331 and sigma 1332.
[3] It is the same word that in judicial contexts is rendered 'accusation/prosecution' (κατηγορία ).
[4] Aristotle, Categories 1b26ff.
