    Unlike the usual approach that construes the line B 8.34 in terms of epistemology, we interpret the line primarily in practical terms. The key to its interpretation is the term noos (mind). Whereas, on the usual interpretation, this term is understood in theoretical terms as the act of, or the capacity for, thinking , in interpreting the line we should rather proceed from its ordinary, rather practical meaning as found, e.g., in the archaic lyric poetry, where it meant a character, attitude, or even moral self. On this interpretation, the line is to be understood in practical or even ethical rather than epistemological terms.
