Action and affection both admit of contraries and also of
variation of degree. Heating is the contrary of cooling, being
heated of being cooled, being glad of being vexed. Thus they
admit of contraries. They also admit of variation of degree: for
it is possible to heat in a greater or less degree; also to be
heated in a greater or less degree. Thus action and affection
also admit of variation of degree. So much, then, is stated with
regard to these categories.
We spoke, moreover, of the category of position when we were
dealing with that of relation, and stated that such terms derived
their names from those of the corresponding attitudes.
As for the rest, time, place, state, since they are easily
intelligible, I say no more about them than was said at the
beginning, that in the category of state are included such states
as 'shod', 'armed', in that of place 'in the Lyceum' and so on,
as was explained before.
