  • I I cite the translation of Bloom, 1968. 2 I assume Socrates refers to mirrors at 510al. If so, he is referring to something made of highly polished metal, rather than glass; in other words, something incapable of reflecting a highly accurate image. 3 Klein, 1975, 113-115. 4 In Smith, 1996, Smith translates 7TíCTTI� as "commonsense."
