Annotations to James Joyce's Ulysses/Scylla and Charybdis/199
Amor matris, subjective and objective genitive (Latin) See 028.32-33.
Amplius. Adhuc. Iterum. Postea. (Latin) Moreover. Furthermore. Again. Next.. These are technical or rhetorical terms used by scholastic debaters to introduce the different points of their arguments. In this context, they all mean much the same thing and are variously translated in modern editions as again, furthermore, moreover, besides, then, next. The first two occur repeatedly in the works of Thomas Aquinas; he does not use Iterum, but Item (likewise, similarly, also) does occur frequently. Instead of Postea (next, then) he prefers Praeterea (besides, moreover). Considering the role Aquinas plays in Stephen's thought, it is possible that he (or Joyce) has misremembered, substituting Iterum. Postea for Item. Praeterea.
