[228d] the aberration of a soul that aims at truth, when the understanding passes beside the mark.

Very true.

Then we must regard a foolish soul as deformed and ill-proportioned.

So it seems.

Then there are, it appears, these two kinds of evils in the soul, one, which people call wickedness, which is very clearly a disease.


And the other they call ignorance, but they are not willing to acknowledge that it is vice, when it arises only in the soul.
