Charmed to learn that when Derrida went to his whores they typically engaged in 
philosophe banter and other acts of intellectual stimulation. How very French. 
No wonder they all have whores.

Presumably, you are right. I mean, you would sure hate that.

On the other hand, if there was something the Romans had but the Greeks
didn't is 'præsumptiones', but as Palma would have, it, 'nothing to be
presumptuous about, you know'.




mid-13c., "seizure and occupation without right," also "taking upon
oneself more than is warranted," from Old French presumcion (12c., Modern French
présomption) and directly from Late Latin praesumptionem (nominative
praesumptio) "confidence, audacity," in classical Latin, "a taking for granted,
anticipation," noun of action from past participle stem ofpraesumere "to take
 beforehand," from prae "before" (see pre-) + sumere "to take" (see exempt
(adj.)). In English, the meaning "the taking of something for granted" is
attested from c.1300. Presumptuous preserves the older sense.
