The paper deals with the problem of distinction between knowledge and true belief in Plato’s dialogue Theaetetus. It is focused on the part Theaet. 201a-c, where according to some commentators, Plato specified the necessary and sufficient conditions for achieving knowledge. The aim of the paper is to find out, whether talking about nec-essary or sufficient conditions is relevant in the wider context of the other dialogues and also in Theaetetus itself.
