Abstract
Plato's paradox of relative change in size and number cannot be understood unless the text is emended and unless full weight is given to shifts of mood and tense and to the play of particles. The critical reader will also need to adapt to a non-Fregean concept of equality and to a definition of change different from Geach's definition of "Cambridge change''. Only so will the structure of the paradox explain young Theaetetus' bewilderment, while also showing that the author of the dialogue was not himself a victim of the paradox he has created.
