Theaetetus
What do you mean?

Stranger
Of land-hunting there are two chief divisions.

Theaetetus
What are they?

Stranger
One is the hunting of tame, the other of wild creatures.

Theaetetus
Is there, then, a hunting of tame creatures?

Stranger
Yes, If man is a tame animal; but make any assumption you like, that there is no tame animal, or that some other tame animal exists but man is a wild one or that man is tame but there is no hunting of man. For the purpose of our definition choose whichever of these statements you think is satisfactory to you.
