Como resolver la problematica pirronica: lo que se aprende de Descartes

By Ernesto Sosa


Descartes's epistemology is placed in the context of the Pyrrhonian problematic of the notorious triad: circle, regress, or foundations. It is argued that Descartes has been radically misinterpreted. His real focus is not the problem of the external world, nor is he a foundationalist. When we place his epistemology in its proper, Pyrrhonian, context, his views emerge as much more subtle and instructive to us today (and, I suspect, tomorrow). No Cartesian he, Descartes offers an epistemology whose architectural elegance survives the erosion of its individual stones
