And astronomy and harmony and arithmetic?

I try hard to do so.

And so do I, my boy, from him and from any others who I think know anything about these things. But nevertheless, although in other respects I get on fairly well in them, yet I am in doubt about one little matter, which should be investigated with your help and that of these others. Tell me, is not learning growing wiser about that which one learns?

Of course.

And the wise, I suppose, are wise by wisdom.
