I just discovered contemporary philosophy has as one of its topics something called "The Paradox of Fiction." I'm still not cynical enough.

Two repeats, both recent. Looking for the second, I found the first, which fits with another even more recent post. It fits so well I'm embarrassed I'd forgotten it. "...a man who says his lines on a stage while acting in a play while he is indeed repeating lines composed by someone else, is not in general quoting the lines. There is a basic difference in that in parasitic discourse the expressions are being used and not mentioned."
