From the Publisher

The original publication of Rowe's translation in 1995 was a landmark event in the study of this fascinating but enigmatic dialogue. Based on a careful and convincing revised Greek text, the contemporary English of this unpretentious, clear, and--above all--accurate revised version make it by far the best available. In fact, Rowe’s translation is now and will surely remain the only acceptable choice. --John Cooper, Princeton University

Socrates: I really owe you a big debt of thanks, Theodorus, for my getting to know Theaetetus, along with getting to know the stranger as well.

Theodorus: And soon, Socrates, you’ll owe triple that, once they’ve worked out the statesman and the philosopher for you.

Socrates: Come now, is that how we’re going to say we’ve heard it put, my dear Theodorus, by the one mightiest at calculations and geometrical matters?

Theodorus: How so, Socrates?

Socrates: Because you set down each of the men as of equal worth, though in honor they stand farther apart from one another than accords with any proportion in your art.
