[537e]

Ion
Yes.

Socrates
Since, I suppose, if it were a knowledge of the same thingsā€”how could we say that one was different from another, when both could give us the same knowledge? Just as I know that there are five of these fingers, and you equally know the same fact about them; and if I should ask you whether both you and I know this same fact by the same art of numeration, or by different arts, you would reply, I presume, that it was by the same?

Ion
Yes.
