Skepticism Stegmüller IV 379
Skepticism / Berkeley / Stegmüller: he will not defend skepticism or even suggest it. - Rather, he attempts to prove that the assumption that there is an independent material world, cannot be formulated without contradiction. - The internal state is the same, if the perceived objects do not exist. - To distinguish, we must specify the beliefs that are associated with the internal state. - But that does not oblige us to share those beliefs with others. - Therefore, we will never know if the skepticism is true.
