The unsuccessful discussion of theatetus's false judgment is usually considered a digression with no connection at all with plato's attack to the second definition of knowledge. This paper argues that it is rather a reductio of it. 188a-c shows that the episteme–doxa alethes identification is self-contradictory as it requires a previous distinction between what truth and falsity are. Nevertheless, falsehood cannot be explained. The argument brings out interesting consequences concerning platonic conception of error.
