[110d]

Socrates
So you do not know it by discovery.

Alcibiades
Not at all, apparently.

Socrates
But you said just now that you did not know it by learning either; and if you neither discovered nor learnt it, how do you come to know it, and whence?

Alcibiades
Well, perhaps that answer I gave you was not correct, that I knew it by my own discovery.

Socrates
Then how was it done?

Alcibiades
I learnt it, I suppose, in the same way as everyone else.

Socrates
Back we come to the same argument. From whom? Please tell me.
