Chris Keroack 11/10/05 Philosophy 100 Hume: Enquiry to Skepticism Hume believes in two types of skepticism. Antecedent skepticism is heavily influenced by Descartes and many others. He claims that it suggests that we cast doubt on all our opinions and principles. In doing so he claims using this method of skepticism requires that we reason based on an original principle that Hume says can not exist. He claims that were we to actually throw out all our opinions and principles we would be incurable; therefore he concludes that this Cartesian Doubt would be impossible to achieve. Consequent skepticism questions our conclusions and judgments by doubting the grounds on which they are based. He also states that this extreme form of skepticism is not possible to use. I feel as though when we think about things and use reason, that we are in actuality using a bit of both forms of skepticism. If we only used the Antecedent skepticism then we would be out of luck for the rest of our lives. This type of skepticism is heavily influenced by Descartes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
