[209a]

Socrates
I will tell you if I can. Assume that I have right opinion about you; if I add the explanation or definition of you, then I have knowledge of you, otherwise I have merely opinion.

Theaetetus
Yes.

Socrates
But explanation was, we agreed, the interpretation of your difference.

Theaetetus
It was.

Socrates
Then so long as I had merely opinion, I did not grasp in my thought any of the points in which you differ from others?

Theaetetus
Apparently not.

Socrates
Therefore I was thinking of some one of the common traits which you possess no more than other men.
