 Responding to Skepticism

Show Summary Details

Preview

Perhaps the most natural objection to externalism is that it does not seem to offer an adequate response to skeptical worries. This chapter explains this objection and shows how it applies to nonexternalist positions as well externalist ones. It is argued that this objection ultimately fails to give us a reason to reject externalism.
