[196d] of what is to be dreaded or dared?

I do.

And that it is not every man that knows it, since neither a doctor nor a seer can know it, and cannot be courageous unless he add this particular knowledge to his own? This was your statement, was it not?

Yes, it was.

And so in fact this is not a thing which, as the proverb says, “any pig would know”; and thus a pig cannot be courageous.

I think not.
