[258a]

Stranger
Hence the not-great must be said to be no less truly than the great?

Theaetetus
No less truly.

Stranger
And so we must recognize the same relation between the just and the not-just, in so far as neither has any more being than the other?

Theaetetus
Of course.

Stranger
And we shall, then, say the same of other things, since the nature of the other is proved to possess real being; and if it has being, we must necessarily ascribe being in no less degree to its parts also.

Theaetetus
Of course.
