...and therefore predictable. It conveys information about the decision‐making proclivities of others; and such familiarity permits a high degree of mutual predictability, allowing decisions in anticipation of what others to whom cases will be handed on will do, facilitating practices such as plea‐bargaining or out‐of‐court settlements, by enabling decisions in anticipation of how ‘the other side’ will react. A problem may be decided about in a particular way for reasons that have little to do with intrinsic features in the case, but much with pressures upon the...

...hundred addressees during the years 96–108 ce , retained the variety of Cicero's Ad familiares . He also began publishing the books serially within his own lifetime, and he polished each letter to focus on a single topic of his own choosing, whether from his public career as an orator or from some other aspect of his social, literary, or domestic life. He thus pursued more aggressively epistolary form's potential as a method of self-portraiture. The posthumously published tenth book contains both sides of Pliny's correspondence with his friend and superior...

There are methods by means of which one finds out what our world is like, methods involving controlled observation, experimentation, and statistical analysis. Novel reading is not another such method. Nevertheless, it is to literary fiction—and more recently to film and television—that people turn in order to express and communicate their views about life and the world and in order to...

However, the level of private stocks, given any history of harvests, may be reduced or even eliminated by anticipation of confiscation or forced sales in times of high demand. Hence, a policy of public intervention may improve the distribution of existing stocks yet reduce the consumption of the whole population via its previously anticipated effects on storage incentives.
