This is in effect to ask how one must operate—or, more simply, what one must do—by way of setting up particular conditions and observing the results in order to establish whether or not what is being claimed is true.

Moreover, I am quite prepared to concede that a distinction can be made from the phenomenological point of view between what is "inside" oneself and what is "outside". This is a point to which we shall return in Chapter V.

The view which I am putting forward does not necessarily imply that a dispositional account of the words "know" and "believe" is correct in all contexts. If it is argued—not unreasonably—that knowing something somehow feels different from believing something, it still does not follow that "know" and "believe" refer to events in a "non-physical" world, but only that certain subtle higher-order types of discrimination-behaviour are sometimes possible.
