Philosophical Skepticism

Philosophical Skepticism

Robert Carroll has posted a new entry on The Skeptic's Dictionary.
"Philosophical Skepticism is a critical attitude which systematically questions the
notion that absolute knowledge and certainty are possible, either in general or in
particular fields. ... Philosophical Skepticism should be distinguished from ordinary
skepticism
, where doubts are raised against certain beliefs or types of beliefs
because the evidence for the particular belief or type of belief is weak or lacking."
