Varieties of Skepticism lecture 9b

James Conant

Abstract



The lecture series distinguishes two varieties of skepticism and the varieties of philosophical response those skepticisms have engendered. The aim of the exercise is to furnish a perspicuous overview of some of the dialectical relations that obtain across some of the range of problems that philosophers have called (and continue to call) “skeptical”. I will argue that such an overview affords a number of forms of philosophical insight.
