"Living with Skepticism" • Philosophy for LunchThursday December 1, 2022 11:30 am - 12:30 pm; 10 Normal Ave. room Schmitt Hall, Room 104

Philosophical worries about skepticism are (quite literally) ancient. The worries, broadly construed, are that we know far less than we claim to know. This P4L isn’t about whether skepticism is true, but what we should do if it is true. In particular, if skepticism is true, should we give up our ordinary beliefs or simply go on living our lives? And if we go on living our lives, can we retain our commonsense beliefs and still be rational? Or does skepticism simply doom us to a life of irrationality? • What is P4L? Students, professors, and other philosophy enthusiasts close-read and discuss a few great passages of philosophy. • Who’s invited? No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome! • Should I bring anything? Bring a beverage, and if you're hungry, bring your actual lunch. • This is an in person event, however there is a Zoom link: https://montclair.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIqcuqsqzgpHdfjjf3m9lJRFHwz0l6mezTD
