[537c] whether Homer speaks correctly or not in these lines?

A charioteer, of course.

Because he has this art, or for some other reason?

No, because it is his art.

And to every art has been apportioned by God a power of knowing a particular business? For I take it that what we know by the art of piloting we cannot also know by that of medicine.

No, to be sure.

And what we know by medicine, we cannot by carpentry also?

No, indeed.
