[55d]

Socrates
Well, then, one part of knowledge is productive, the other has to do with education and support. Is that true?

Protarchus
It is.

Socrates
Let us first consider whether in the manual arts one part is more allied to knowledge, and the other less, and the one should be regarded as purest, the other as less pure.

Protarchus
Yes, we ought to consider that.

Socrates
And should the ruling elements of each of them be separated and distinguished from the rest?

Protarchus
What are they, and how can they be separated?
