Moore and Wittgenstein on Scepticism


Philosophy Workshop, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Lecture, Oct 01, 1989.

Moore says "Here is a hand" is a proposition that needs no further demonstration. Wittgenstein asks what it is that would make us certain about this proposition, and suggests that it is a "way of life".
