Coherence, Knowledge and Skepticism

  • Peter Klein
Part of the Philosophical Studies Series book series (PSSP, volume 95)


About twenty years ago Keith Lehrer wrote this about how he does philosophy:

… In philosophy, we do not have experiments, only the light of reason to guide us… Anyone who obscures that light is defeating the enterprise… Should I ever reach the point at which I am disinclined to seek criticism and amend my views in light of it, I shall take to writing fiction… and give up writing philosophy altogether. Criticism is the touchstone of philosophical inquiry, and those who shunt it aside… are phonies and beguilers.1
