[182c] one thing or another; but let us attend strictly to this only, which is the object of our discussion. Let us ask them, “Are all things, according to your doctrine, in motion and flux?” Is that so?


Have they then both kinds of motion which we distinguished? Are they moving in space and also undergoing alteration?

Of course; that is, if they are to be in perfect motion.

Then if they moved only in space, but did not undergo alteration, we could perhaps say what qualities belong to those moving things which are in flux, could we not?

That is right.
