The Skeptical Paradox

A brief introduction to the Skeptical Paradox

The Skeptical Paradox is essentially the recognition that, as a fallible being, your perception of the universe might be entirely flawed, and so nothing is as it seems. In acknowledging that this is the case, you seem to eliminate the justification for any of your beliefs, and if you have no justified beliefs then you cannot have knowledge. So, it seems likely that you don’t anything. Wasn’t a big surprise to me, but some people seem to have an issue with the idea.
