Opening heading[edit]

I came across this page in a random search. It contains a bad grammatical error (second para), but I don't know enough about the subject to be sure of the appropriate correction. JackofOz 02:24, 19 Jan 2004 (UTC)

If the error is still there, can you at least indicate what it is? There might be more than one grammatical error in the second paragraph, so it'd be good to make sure your particular one gets addressed. --Ryguasu 12:40, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Isn't this article redundant with Original position? If there are no objections I am going to merge this into the other article. --Malathion 5 July 2005 02:10 (UTC)

What about Kant? I thought that he originally explained that we can't get beyond our senses, and called it the veil of ignorance (but I'm trying to remember this from first-year philosophy, so I could be wrong). In any case, I've linked here from fallibilism and the link comes off as a little odd because veil of ignorance redirects to Rawls. Any ideas? --Frekja 19:08, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Languages Sidebar[edit]

How come the Hebrew version of this entry does not appear on the sidebar of other Languages? I don't know how to change this. See the link, including the sidebar that leads to this entry, and its German equivalent:

Veil of ignorance (philosophy)Veil of ignorance — I suggest that this is the primary topic and that the later music album is strictly secondary. Further, as there are only 2 topics, a disambiguation page is unnecessary. Cybercobra (talk) 07:06, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Support per WP:TWODABS. --JaGatalk 19:26, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support. Clear primary topic. Ucucha 21:08, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support, because it's the primary topic (incidentally not because of TWODABS, which just says what we should do after deciding that there's a primary topic).--Kotniski (talk) 11:52, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

SF story reference unnecessary[edit]

The reference to an SF story about the concept at the end seems pointless and possibly an exercise in self-promotion to me, given that neither the author nor the story referenced are in any way particularly note-worthy. IMO it should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.108.180.242 (talk) 16:54, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Seconding removal of story. Zelightbrigade (talk) 19:54, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
