The Story of Scepticism
In this discussion, well look at classical sceptical arguments from Parmenides and Zeno, through to Descartes and Hume, to see how much we really know, and how much doubt can be reasonably cast on what we always thought we knew, from many different angles. But I'll also ask just how useful is scepticism, anyway? Nowadays we use the possibility of doubt to argue against everything from free will to morality, the self, even the existence of our own minds. But is this a good way of arguing? Does it prove anything? Or is scepticism rather about showing the limits of our knowledge? Ultimately I want to be sceptical about scepticism itself, to try to see just how far it can get us.
