[247a]

Theaetetus
Yes.

Stranger
Well then, do they not say that one soul is just and another unjust, one wise and another foolish?

Theaetetus
Of course.

Stranger
And do they not say that each soul becomes just by the possession and presence of justice, and the opposite by the possession and presence of the opposite?

Theaetetus
Yes, they agree to this also.

Stranger
But surely they will say that that which is capable of becoming present or absent exists.

Theaetetus
Yes, they say that.
