Meno Part 3- Angelina Blacklaws

In part 3, a point is made by Socrates “in men, all other things rely on the soul, while the things of the soul rely on wisdom (page 32). I find that a confusing phrase, even though is seems straight forward. Men rely on the soul, I think that means that is how men classify people. But the soul is all declared on your wisdom. So in conclusion doesn’t that mean for a men to rely on the soul, they have to rely on the wisdom too?
