Soc it to Me

SOCRATES: Ask me now what craft I think pastry baking is.

POLUS: All right, I will. What craft is pastry baking?

SOCRATES: It isn’t one at all, Polus. Now say, “What is it then?”

POLUS: All right.

SOCRATES: It’s a knack. Say, “A knack for what?”

POLUS: All right.

CIPas: WTF do you mean by craft vs. knack?
