But “does not see” is the same as “does not know,” if it is true that seeing is knowing.


Then this is our result. When a man has acquired knowledge of a thing and still remembers it, he does not know it, since he does not see it; but we said that would be a monstrous conclusion.

Very true.

So, evidently, we reach an impossible result if we say that knowledge and perception are the same.

So it seems.

Then we must say they are different.

I suppose so.
