Translator notes[edit]

I've tried to be honest to the fr: article; although I have added one or two quotes from the Perseus Project online Hippias. Additionally, there seems to be more controversy here than in France as to the authenticity of the work, I've therefore done a bit of reading there & added the section on the Authenticity debate.Bridesmill 00:44, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Complete blunder[edit]

This is one of the reasons wikipedia is not respected. Socrates offers 3 definitions? Is that a joke? Did the maker of this page even bother reading the text?

And why is "appropriateness" suddenly a claim of Socrates?! 290D Hippias: "Whatever is appropriate for a particular object makes that object fine. That is what we will accept."

Just before what you cited, in 290d too, the anonymous defines the appropriate... But that's right that this article is not very good. So, I rewrite the french article (that had inspired the english one), but have not finish yet. Théétète (talk) 10:31, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
