μήτε σωμάτων ἐπιμελεῖσθαι μήτε χρημάτων πρότερον μηδὲ οὕτω σφόδρα
ὡς τῆς ψυχῆς ὅπως ὡς ἀρίστη ἔσται
How do the underline words fit in this sentence?
"[persuading you, whether young or old,] to neither take care of your body nor your money first,
nor yet so much,..., so that it (your conscious-self) will be as best as possible."
It seems that he meant to use a negative result clause, "nor yet so much that your conscious-self becomes as bad as can be",
but changed to positive result clause while speaking.
