In-Page Footnotes

Footnote 3: Footnote 4: Snowdon calls it a “conjecture”, which he wouldn’t be able to demonstrate however much time he had.

Footnote 6: As posited by the materialist!

Footnote 14: This is a very brief and misleading statement, especially as Snowdon – an animalist – knows that “bodies” are not the same things as “organisms”. But this doesn’t really matter here, and “body” is probably being used in the sense of “organism” in any case.

Footnote 15: Snowdon gesticulates in a way that’s intended not to assume that he and his body are identical, but it’s a hard act as he just points twice to the same thing.

Footnote 19: Footnote 21: Snowdon doesn’t mention computers.

Footnote 33: I seem to have invented this bullet, and I don’t think Snowdon actually said it, but he should have!

Footnote 39:
