PEREZ OTERO, Manuel. Varieties of Skepticism and Anti-Skepticism. Anal. filos. [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.1, pp.7-27. ISSN 1851-9636.

The goal of this article is to provide several elements for an appropriate understanding of the diverse dialectics between skepticism and anti-skepticism in epistemology. In particular (against some anti-skeptical strategies), to demonstrate that a certain skeptical thesis is false or cannot be coherently defended may be insufficient to solve the conceptual problem posed by a certain skeptical argument for the thesis. I include a discussion of the force and limits of transcendental arguments, as well as an analysis of the structure of that kind of arguments, illustrated by Putnam's argument against the epistemic possibility of being a brain in a vat.

Palabras clave : Skeptical and Anti-Skeptical Positions; Radical Skepticism; Transcendental Arguments; Brains in a Vat; Putnam.
