[233a]

Theaetetus
What do you mean and just what do you refer to? I do not yet understand your question.

Stranger
I ask whether it is possible for a man to know all things.

Theaetetus
If that were possible, Stranger, ours would indeed be a blessed race.

Stranger
How, then, can one who is himself ignorant say anything worth while in arguing with one who knows?

Theaetetus
He cannot at all.

Stranger
Then what in the world can the magical power of the sophistical art be?

Theaetetus
Magical power in what respect?
