[186a]

Theaetetus
Well, I do think so.

Socrates
To which class, then, do you assign being; for this, more than anything else, belongs to all things?

Theaetetus
I assign them to the class of notions which the soul grasps by itself directly.

Socrates
And also likeness and unlikeness and identity and difference?

Theaetetus
Yes.

Socrates
And how about beautiful and ugly, and good and bad?

Theaetetus
I think that these also are among the things the essence of which the soul most certainly views in their relations to one another, reflecting within itself upon the past and present
