Abstract

The radical skeptic is faced with the problem of understanding the relation between his skeptical views on the one hand and our everyday knowledge-claims on the other. In this paper I criticize one highly influential account of how the skeptic should understand this relation — due to Thompson Clarke (1972) and Barry Stroud (1984) — and propose an alternative account that I believe more precisely reconstructs the skeptic’s point of view.

Keywords: Thompson Clarke, Barry Stroud, skepticism
