Abstract: This paper uses methods from the spectral theory of partially ordered sets to clarify and extend some recent results concerning approximately finite-dimensional $ {C^\ast}$-algebras. An extremely explicit description is obtained of the Jacobson topology on the primitive ideal space, and it is shown that this topology has a basis of quasi-compact open sets. In addition, the main results of [4] are proved using only elementary means.
