Forte second response to Dubiel

1. There is a discrepancy here between Dubiel's NECMT paper, and that paper as published in MTO 6.3. In [Dubiel 12] we read "The received view isn't even antithetical to these experiences . . . ," whereas in the corresponding location in the NECMT paper he writes: "The received theory isn't antithetical to these experiences. . . . " I would not mention this rather trivial discrepancy were it not that Prof. Dubiel so vehemently denies having used the expression "received theory," asserting that ". . . what I call the 'received view' in my talk . . . is the *only* thing I ever call 'received'" [2.5].

2. The first definition of "received" given by the Oxford English Dictionary is: "Generally adopted, accepted, approved as true or good." I believe that Prof. Dubiel uses the term in a mildly sardonic way, but I could be wrong.
