Devoted to the history of the footnote, this study emphasizes the importance of the footnote in offering empirical support for the stories we live by. The footnote's own story is neither so simple nor so reliable as it might seem, its practitioners including philosophers as well as historians.
Devoted entirely to the history of the footnote, this quirky but academic study emphasizes the importance of the footnote in offering empirical support for the stories we live by. Its own story is neither so simple nor so reliable as it might seem, the footnote being the creation of a varied and talented group which includes almost as many philosophers as historians. It numbers among its celebrated practitioners Swift, Pope, Gibbon, Rank, Hume and Hegel.
