True, Truth, Life. Epistemological Deficits and Pragmatic Solutions?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Truth; Life; Epistemology; Moral Action; Sextus Empiricus.

The goal of this paper is characterized by a new philosophical attention towards a very important question: the relationship between some dogmatic assumptions about the notions of truth and the practical consequences they can or should have. Based on a careful reading of some crucial passages from Sextus Empiricus's works (especially "Outlines of Pyrrhonism" II 80-96 and I 23-24), the paper will analyze the mechanisms - from both a dogmatic point of view and a skeptical one - through which we can act (and react) in response to the multifarious stimuli we receive from the external world as well as the moral interconnections we experience with other human beings.
