[221d] Shall we assume that he is just a man, or by all means really a man of wisdom?

Theaetetus
Certainly not just a man; for I catch your meaning that he is very far from being wise, although his name implies wisdom.

Stranger
But we must, it seems, assume that he has an art of some kind.

Theaetetus
Well, then, what in the world is this art that he has?

Stranger
Good gracious! Have we failed to notice that the man is akin to the other man?

Theaetetus
Who is akin to whom?

Stranger
The angler to the sophist.

Theaetetus
How so?

Stranger
They both seem clearly to me to be a sort of hunters.
