Skepticism remains a central and defining issue in epistemology, and in the wider tradition of Western philosophy. To better understand the contemporary position of this important philosophical subject, Allan Hazlett introduces a range of topics, including:

? Ancient skepticism
? skeptical arguments in the work of Hume and Descartes
? Cartesian skepticism in contemporary epistemology
? anti-skeptical strategies, including Mooreanism, nonclosure, and contextualism
? additional varieties of skepticism
? the practical consequences of Cartesian skepticism

Presenting a comprehensive survey of the key problems, arguments, and theories, together with additional readings, A Critical Introduction to Skepticism is an ideal guide for students and scholars looking to understand how skepticism is shaping epistemology today.
