Abstract

I defend the radical claim that there are only two solutions to what Chisholm calls ‘The Problem of the Criterion’: methodological skepticism and a view which I would like to call ‘particularism’, if the label were not already taken. Finally, I consider how this result bears on a recent critique of skepticism offered by Thomas Kelly (2005), and argue that it fails.
