Some of this content is from Wikipedia. I was the contributor there for that content originally. It in turn draws on Almond's entry for the Penguin Dictionary of Philosophy, and I have permission for extensive use of the text.Martin Cohen 12:29, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Martin, if this article begins to change considerably and is unrecognizable as a wikipedia article, you can remove the content from wikipedia' checkbox (found next to the SAVE button when you edit the article).
