[225a]

Theaetetus
Of what nature?

Stranger
We agreed that fighting was a division of acquisitive art.

Theaetetus
Yes, we did.

Stranger
Then it is quite fitting to divide it into two parts.

Theaetetus
Tell what the parts are.

Stranger
Let us call one part of it the competitive and the other the pugnacious.

Theaetetus
Agreed.

Stranger
Then it is reasonable and fitting to give to that part of the pugnacious which consists of bodily contests some such name as violent.

Theaetetus
Yes.

Stranger
And what other name than controversy
