And when you say “carpentry”? Do you mean anything else than the art of making wooden furnishings?

Nothing else by that, either.

Then in both cases you define that to which each form of knowledge belongs?


But the question, Theaetetus, was not to what knowledge belongs, nor how many the forms of knowledge are; for we did not wish to number them, but to find out what knowledge itself really is. Or is there nothing in what I say?

Nay, you are quite right.
