Medieval Skepticism as a Historiographical Category

Guido J. R. Alt

Resumo


The essay explores the plausibility of the historiographical category of medieval skepticism by inspecting two cases of putative skeptical arguments in the later middle ages, namely those of the Henry of Ghent and J. Duns Scotus. A methodological distinction between the history of philosophy and doxology is attempted before a cursory analysis of the epistemological controversy between both authors and its relationship with the skeptical principle of indistinguishability.
