"But [swift/swiftly], when you fall into a cul-de-sac, leap to another thought of the mind." He calls a)/poron ["cul-de-sac"] that for which it is not possible to find a way out [po/ros]. With these words he means to ridicule Socrates, as jesting in the investigations and being made to change by difficulty. But he is teaching him that, if you are at a loss in some respect, leap swiftly to another thought. But he, subordinated to another, obviously himself coming into a trial of what is being said, is subordinated.
