I recently expanded this article, but it could use expansion still, especially on the section about Perry's work. - Jaymay 08:05, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
I think there is too much attention given to the dialogical format of A Digalogue.... This sentence in particular is particularly unnecessary.
"The format of associating different philosophical positions with different characters in a dialogue recalls David Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion."
Aside from the fact that Hume's book is arbitrarily singled out here (wouldn't Plato make a more paradigmatic example?), it should be sufficient just to mention the dialogical format in passing.
