Tell me now: if we give strong drink to this puppet of ours, what effect will it have on its character?

In reference to what particular do you ask this question?

To no particular, for the moment: I am putting the question in general terms—“when this shares in that, what sort of thing does it become in consequence?” I will try to convey my meaning still more clearly: what I ask is this—does the drinking of wine intensify pleasures and pains and passions and lusts?

Yes, greatly.
