Veltigar Posted December 29, 2013 Share Posted December 29, 2013 Your first point is truly bizarre. No, obviously I'm not making 'the common mistake that reader knowledge equals character knowledge' in a post in which I explicitly point to a character's lack of knowledge of things that readers know. Everyone is justified from their own point of view. If this is really the point you're trying to make, have at it. It's entirely semantic and pointless to argue that justified doesn't mean having correct and reasonable beliefs but instead means having opinions that derive from one's knowledge. The first definition is meaningful and useful, the second is essentially tautological. You do make the common mistake. Dany doesn't know the truth (fact) and based on her own knowledge she is completely justified in hating on the Ned. However, if she learns the truth than she loses said justification. It's not rocket science you know. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
