About the Authors
  • One of the questions that philosophers discuss is: How can we avoid, or at least reduce, errors when explaining the world? The skeptical answer to this question is: We cannot avoid errors since no statement is certain or even definitely plausible, but we can eliminate some past errors. This book advocates the skeptical position and discusses its practical applications in science, ethics, aesthetics, and politics. It brings philosophy down to earth and comprises an outline of a skeptical guide to the real world.

    • Advocates a thorough and reasonable skepticism
    • Lists practical applications of epistemology
    • The book presents a comprehensive view in epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, and politics
