    Nop, I was just asking about the grammar. Sorry I'm not that specific, but those who usually answer my threads already know this.

    Sorry again.

    Cordialmente,

    Looks good.

    Cuchu, what about the following examples:

    1) As is the case with PH, the Skeptical treatment of efficient causes at AD iii 195–358 should prevent us from interpreting Sextus as asserting that the holding of opinions is the cause of perturbation and unhappiness, whereas the adoption of suspension of judgment is the cause of unperturbedness and happiness.

    2) Of course, in this case as well the Skeptic is not committed to any belief, but is simply following the appearances, as is the case with his acting in accordance with the laws and customs of his community.

    3) As is the case with these two aspects, I have also argued that the Skeptic does not seem to regard the attainment of ataraxia as an essential part of his Pyrrhonism.

    Thanks,

    Sextus

    I'd say "as for", not "as with". To me, they're not equivalent.

    But the meaning I'm looking for is not "as regards" or "concerning". I'm saying that what happens in the case of A, also happens in the case of B.
