Quote from a Harvard open course:
Fertility is not a condition of marriage, people who cannot stir from their death bed may marry, so she advances all kinds of arguments along the lines that we began last time about what the proper end, essential nature, the telos, of marriage is.

Does it miss "of something' there? 'along the lines of something that we began last time about what the proper end, essential nature, the telos, of marriage is.'
Thank you.

The sentence is fine. The underlined means arguments "of the same kind that".
