Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A defense of Donald Davidson's dissolution to the problem of global skepticism
by Peto, Jonathan, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 69; 1472355
Abstract (Summary)

I defend Donald Davidson's theory of radical interpretation against Kirk Ludwig, Peter Klein and Colin McGinn, who claim that Davidson's theory fails to refute global skepticism. I show that each of their arguments depends on misinterpretations of Davidson's argument and how he applied his theory to the problem of global skepticism. As a consequence, I also argue that a rebuttal to these criticisms can be given on Davidson's behalf.
