Criteria I 37
Criteria/Cavell: the skeptic is right with the assumption that to the knowledge that someone has pain belongs more than just the presence of criteria.
Criteria can determine whether a behavior expresses more pain than pleasure, but not whether it is a genuine pain instead of a pretended one.
I 185
Wittgenstein/Cavell: both deny, contrary to most other philosophers, that conformity with criteria (a sign of intelligible speech) can be justified by reference to universals.
