Stranger
Shall we say, then, that the king is more akin to the intellectual than to the manual or the practical in general?

Younger Socrates
Certainly.

Stranger
Shall we, therefore, put all these together as one—the political art and the statesman, the royal art and the king?

Younger Socrates
Obviously.

Stranger

Younger Socrates
Certainly.

Stranger
Now pay attention to see if we can perceive any natural line of cleavage in it.

Younger Socrates
Tell us of what sort it is.
