      In this case, yes; it means they’ve never actually read Sherlock Holmes, but they’re trying to have an intellectual discussion of it.

  1. Michael MIller says:

    Err… not to argue with the overall point, but this might not be the best example. Sherlock Holmes minutiae is hardly ‘intellectual’ and actually, both of these quotes come (somewhat corrupted) from a list Watson makes at the start of ‘Study in Scarlet’. The original point stands, as the man described in the list has little in common with Sherlock Holmes of later stories…
