[304e] as a different species, subservient to the other.

Younger Socrates

Here is another function or power; what are we to think about it?

Younger Socrates
What is it?

The power of determining how war shall be waged against those upon whom we have declared war, whether we are to call this a science or not a science?

Younger Socrates
How could we think it is not a science, when generalship and all military activity practise it?

And the power which is able and knows how to deliberate and decide whether to make war or peace, shall we assume that it is the same as this or different?

Younger Socrates
If we are consistent, we must assume that it is different.
