Headword: Ὑπόληψις
Adler number: upsilon,537
Translated headword: supposition, assumption, plan
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] notion, resistance.[1]
"He recognized the slackness of the leaders [or: officials], in not foreseeing his plan."[2]
Aristotle says in the Topics:[3] "if a supposition is false and true, it would be an opinion, for an opinion is the species of a supposition."
Greek Original:
Ὑπόληψις: νοήσις, ἀντίπραξις. τῶν δὲ ἀρχόντων κατεγίνωσκε ῥᾳθυμίαν, ὡς οὐ προνοούντων τῆς αὐτοῦ ὑπολήψεως. Ἀριστοτέλης λέγει ἐν τοῖς Τόποις: εἰ ὑπόληψις ἔστι ψευδὴς καὶ ἀληθής, εἴη ἂν καὶ δόξα: εἶδος γὰρ ὑπολήψεως ἡ δόξα.
Notes:
Same headword in Hesychius (upsilon684), but different glossing.
[1] 'Resistance', ἀντίπραξις , does not seem to have lexical support, but see the next note.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. (Perhaps the 'plan' in the lost full context was one of resistance, leading to the attribution of that that sense to the term here.)
[3] Rather, Alexander of Aphrodisias, Commentary on Aristotle's Topica 158.18-19 (on Aristotle, Topics 111a14-33): the existence of contraries in a species requires that we examine the genus. The term also occurs in alpha 979.
