I know the standard expected but are we expected to reference authors/scholars from memory and give page numbers? I'm currently taking notes of quotes but am cautious not to clutter my mind with superfluous material and just memorise the key themes/arguments.. Any thoughts?

You only need to memorise the quotes and know who wrote it and occasionally where they wrote it down, such as John Stuart Mill once proclaimed in his book Utilitarianism, "It is better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied". You may also need to analyse the quote in some instances. But you don't need to reference page numbers.

From what I have read, I am sure J.S didn't mention Plato, rather a 'fool'.

It seems that that my computer decided to change "fool" to "Plato".

As I definitely do not remember writing Plato.

This is what happens when I don't think about what I'm writing.
