Abstract: In this note we consider relations between residual finiteness and residual linearity for a nilpotent group G. We show, amongst other things, that if the center and the commutator subgroup of G are finitely generated and G is residually linear, then G is residually finite. Indeed the property which we use on linear groups is that linear groups satisfy the minimal condition on centralizers.
