Concluding Remarks: Skepticism and Relativism

Show Summary Details

Preview

The Concluding Remarks offer an overview of ingredients relevant to Pyrrhonian skepticism and its history—and thus, ingredients relevant to a perspective that is defended as plausible throughout the book: a commitment to Socratic investigation and epistemic caution, engagement with metaphysical questions about a world that might be indeterminate, and the question of how one can think and investigate without forming beliefs.

Keywords: skepticism; relativism; metaphysics; Socratic epistemology; Pyrrhonism
