This work makes a refreshing change to have somebody argue that I'm not really all that confused, insouciant, and sophistical. Bacon's patient replies to dozens of my critics represent an enormous amount of work. I am grateful to him for having taken the time and trouble to produce a sustained and carefully argued defense of my line of thought.
