Understanding/Cavell: I guess, only if nothing is implied, understanding can be guaranteed.

Cavell: where understanding is necessary, there can be misunderstanding._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
