The Suda On Line (SOL) presents Suda Classics - a weekly message featuring
the best of recent additions to the Suda On Line database of translations
from the Suda.  For this first week, we'll be featuring an extract from
Marcelo Boeri's marvelous annotated translation of Suda lemma Tau 282 Adler,
"telos," "end."  Use this url to look up the full translation entry in the
Suda On Line database (there should be no spaces):

<extract>
Telos, tau,282 [End]

End: "that for the sake of which", that is to say "the end", is twofold:
"that in view of which" and "that in view of whom"[1]. For instance, for the
builder the end as "that for the sake of which" is to produce a covering
preventive of rain and burning heat for us, for he produces such a covering
for us. Therefore, we are the builder's end in the sense of "that in view of
whom". The same thing can be considered with regard to all the things
constituted by nature as well. For example, desire for the divine, the
desire in virtue of which each animated thing makes itself a different
thing, is an end in the sense of "that in view of which". For generation is
in view of it. But since bodies become instruments for the souls, these are
ends in the sense of "that in view of whom" [2]. Thus nature is analogous to
the builder, who is a craftsman, and the soul becomes a covering for the man
giving commands, and the house for the body. But the end not only is twofold
("that in view of which" and "that in view of whom") in the case of animals
but also in the case of plants [. . . .]
