    Ancestors of this paper were read to the Staff Seminar of the Department of Philosophy, The Faculties, A.N.U.; to the International Conference on Evolutionary Epistemology, held in Newcastle, NSW in July 1987; and to the Annual Conference of the Australasian Association of Philosophy, held in Brisbane, August 1987. I am grateful to members of those audiences for comments, and also to Philip Pettit and Russell Hardin for discussion. Translations of German passages quoted are my own.
