Antike und moderne Skepsis zur Einführung (German Edition) by Markus Gabriel

Greek Roman Philosophy

By Markus Gabriel

Skepsis ist die Bezeichnung für eine philosophische Haltung, die grundsätzlich infrage stellt, dass wir überhaupt irgendetwas wissen können. Trotz der Erfolge der modernen Naturwissenschaften kehrt diese Frage in der gegenwärtigen Philosophie wieder. Denn es ist gerade die Wissenschaft, die uns lehrt, dass die Welt anders ist, als sie uns erscheint. Daher stellt sich für einen Skeptiker die Frage, ob sie nicht auch anders sein könnte, als sie der Wissenschaft erscheint. Diese Frage führt auf den Unterschied von Sein und Schein, von dem die antike Skepsis ihren Ausgang nimmt und der in der modernen Skepsis wiederkehrt. Allerdings besteht die Skepsis nicht nur aus kritischen Rückfragen an Wissensansprüche, sondern auch in einer Lebensform. Wenn wir nichts wissen können, used to be sollen wir dann tun? Auch diese Frage muss thematisieren, wer sich der Skepsis stellt.
