[112e]

Socrates
There again, Alcibiades, do you see how unfairly you speak?

Alcibiades
In what ?

Socrates
In stating that I say so.

Alcibiades
Why, do you not say that l do not know about the just and unjust?

Socrates
Not at all.

Alcibiades
Well, do I say it?

Socrates
Yes.

Alcibiades
How, pray ?

Socrates
I will show you, in the following way. If I ask you which is the greater number, one or two, you will answer “two”?

Alcibiades
Yes, I shall.

Socrates
How much greater?

Alcibiades
By one.

Socrates
Then which of us says that two are one more than one?

Alcibiades
I.

Socrates
And I was asking, and you were answering?

Alcibiades
Yes.
