"If someone were to say that nothing is by nature more to be chosen than to be avoided, nor more to be avoided than to be chosen, he will live happily". (This text is a translation from the Greek; this is why it may sound weird.)

Is this usage of "nor" grammatically correct?

Another test is to see whether you would insert "either" or "neither" before the first option. Here, it has to be "either"; thus "or".

Hi,

"If someone were to say that nothing is by nature more to be chosen than to be avoided, nor more to be avoided than to be chosen, he will live happily". (This text is a translation from the Greek; this is why it may sound weird.)

Is this usage of "nor" grammatically correct? I've had to ponder this a bit. I think it should be 'or'. Consider a simpler example: Nothing is bigger or better
