[240d]

Stranger
When, in talking about appearance, we say that he deceives and that his art is an art of deception, shall we say that our mind is misled by his art to hold a false opinion, or what shall we say?

Theaetetus
We shall say that. What else could we say?

Stranger
But, again, false opinion will be that which thinks the opposite of reality, will it not?

Theaetetus
Yes.

Stranger
You mean, then, that false opinion thinks things which are not?

Theaetetus
Necessarily.
