Comment on Rosenberg

  • Harald Pilot
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 133)


Professor Rosenberg proposes to answer the challenge of scepticism against the possibility of empirical knowledge by a construction of an epistemic process, which legitimizes the acceptation of empirical theories. Professor Rosenberg tackles the challenge of scepticism which presents itself for him in the form of the following dilemma:
  1. (1)

    If empirical knowledge is not certain, but revisable, then it has to be arbitrary.

  2. (2)

    If it is certain, then it has to be necessary and thus not allowing to explain the possibility of error.
