The reference "Daniel Dennett, 'Mid-Term Examination' p. 363" is a bit mysterious. I don't find a book by that title on Amazon or at my library's website, and a search for "Dennett Mid-Term Examination" on google yields nothing useful. Is this some kind of typo or other error? --The Sarcastic Fringehead, Aug 16 2:30 PST
The search in my Dennett collection however was a bit more fruitful - the reference is to chapter 10 in 'The Intentional Stance'. The page number given is also accurate for the same. I've amended the entry to account for this. -- Duncan Crowe
Wikipedia has its own principle of charity, which seems like a notable practical extension of these ideas. Self-reference isn't very encyclopedic, but is there room in the article for a reference to the Wikipedia policy: "Assume Good Faith?" --Thomas B♘talk 06:05, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
