“It is the custom to ornament every scientific work with a bibliography”
“The aim may be to test the test the reader’s competence by laying out for him an awe- inspiring course of reading; it may be to prove the author’s competence by showing the mountain of dross he has sifted to win one nugget of truth”. (Peter p.79)
