[228b]

Theaetetus
Nothing else at all.

Stranger
Well then; do we not see that in the souls of worthless men opinions are opposed to desires, anger to pleasures, reason to pain, and all such things to one another?

Theaetetus
Yes, they are, decidedly.

Stranger
Yet they must all be naturally related.

Theaetetus
Of course.

Stranger
Then we shall be right if we say that wickedness is a discord and disease of the soul.

Theaetetus
Yes, quite right.
