    A sceptic finds Dallas absurd. A cynic thinks the public doesn’t.
    Clive James (b. 1939)

    Ideas are so much flat psychological surface unless some mirrored matter gives them cognitive lustre. This is why as a pragmatist I have so carefully posited ‘reality’ ab initio, and why throughout my whole discussion, I remain an epistemologist realist.
    —William James (1842–1910)
