page 517 note 1 See on this topic Anscombe's, G. E. M. ‘Faith’, in her Collected Philosophical (Basil Blackwell: Oxford, 1981), vol. III, pp. 113–120, and the important series of papers by Welbourne, Michael: ‘The Transmission of Knowledge’, Philosophical Quarterly, vol. 29 (1979), pp. 1–9; ‘The Community of Knowledge’, ibid., vol. 31 (1981), pp. 302–14; and ‘Knowing and Believing’, Philosophy, vol. 55 (1980), pp. 317–28.

page 521 note 3 Much of what follows owes its inspiration to a paper by Tony Coady on ‘The Disappearance of History’ at the Moral Sciences Club, Cambridge, in Lent Term 1983.
page 523 note 4 There is a useful exposition, with bibliography, of the elements of textual criticism in Reynolds, L. D. and Wilson, N. G., Scribes and Scholars: A Guide to the Transmission of Creek and Latin Literature, Second Edition (Clarendon Press: Oxford, 1974), pp. 186ff., 247ff.
page 524 note 5 Wittgenstein, Ludwig, Philosophical Investigations, translated by Anscombe, G. E. M. (Basil Blackwell: Oxford, 1953), p. 33. Wittgenstein's critique of the ‘bad philosophy of mind and language’ that I mention in this paragraph is lucidly expounded in Kripke, Saul A., Wittgenstein on Rules and Private Language (Basil Blackwell: Oxford, 1982).
page 528 note 6 This paper gained much from the kind comments of several audiences in Cambridge to whom it has been read. I have been particularly helped also by remarks of Lynne Broughton, Paul Gooch, Julius Kovesi, Jorge Secada and Jenny Teichman.
