This is a matter of credibility, to raise a subject that will be treated in vari{u00AD}ous ways in the essays that follow: for credibility is necessarily involved in the question of fakes, of forgers and of textual authenticity, as crediblility plays a role both in es{u00AD}tablishing the difference between actual documentary evidence and pseudo-documentarism in classical literature, and in approaching the larger subject of fakes, of forgers and textual authenticity. When computer algorithms go beyond distinguishing textual correspondences and take the leap into belief, or into comprehen{u00AD}sion of irony, then perhaps human brains and thought of textual evi{u00AD}dence will be obsolete. As Housman stated in his essay on 2The Applica{u00AD}tion of Thought to Textual Criti{u00AD}cism3 (1921): 2Knowledge is good, method is good, but one thing beyond all others is necessary; and that is to have a head, not a pumpkin, on your shoulders and brains, not pudding, in your head
