[152b]

Socrates
It is likely that a wise man is not talking nonsense; so let us follow after him. Is it not true that sometimes, when the same wind blows, one of us feels cold, and the other does not? or one feels slightly and the other exceedingly cold?

Theaetetus
Certainly.

Socrates
Then in that case, shall we say that the wind is in itself cold or not cold or shall we accept Protagoras's saying that it is cold for him who feels cold and not for him who does not?

Theaetetus
Apparently we shall accept that.

Socrates
Then it also seems cold, or not, to each of the two?

Theaetetus
Yes.

Socrates
But “seems” denotes perceiving?

Theaetetus
It does.
