Is this information helpful to you ?
Thanks, it does help. I see it now.
I've found the text from which this quote was taken, Aristotle's On the Soul/De Anima
, Section 432a
line 3. This edition
from 1910, with Scholia, has the quote like this:
ἐπεὶ δὲ οὐδὲ πρᾶγμα οὐθὲν ἔστι παρὰ τὰ μεγέθη, ὡς δοκεῖ, τὰ αἰσθητὰ κεχωρισμένον,
ἐν τοῖς εἴδεσι τοῖς αἰσθητοῖς τὰ νοητά ἐστι, τά τε ἐν ἀφαιρέσει λεγόμενα καὶ ὅσα τῶν αἰσθητῶν
ἕξεις καὶ πάθη.
I'm sure others versed in philosophy in general, and Aristotle's writings in particular, would prove
more helpful in understanding the idea conveyed in this quote.
