[317b] writings of kings and good men.

That is true.

And must it not be that those who know will not write differently at different times on the same matters?

They will not.

Nor will they ever change one set of accepted rules for another in respect of the same matters.

No, indeed.

So if we see some persons anywhere doing this, shall we say that those who do so have knowledge, or have none?

That they have no knowledge.

And again, whatever is right, we shall say is lawful for each person, whether in medicine or in cookery or in gardening?
