(p.169) Chapter 7 Farewell to Epistemic Angst
Epistemic Angst

Duncan Pritchard

Princeton University Press

This chapter brings together the main threads of discussion from the previous chapters to offer a unified solution—a “biscopic” proposal, as the chapter describes it—to the two formulations of the radical skeptical problem that this volume has been engaging with. To this end, this chapter first revisits some of the key points raised in the rest of the volume in order to set the scene for a resolution of radical skepticism. Once the solution has been expounded, the chapter then explores it further by considering some natural objections that might be raised for the view and comparing it with rival proposals.

Keywords:   epistemic angst, biscopic proposal, radical skepticism, anti-skeptical contrasts, epistemic vertigo
