Abstract and Keywords

This article looks at philosopher Immanuel Kant's view and argument against skepticism. It explains that Kant's response to skepticism has come to be epitomized by an appeal to transcendental arguments and that this argument is said to provide a distinctively Kantian way of dealing with the skeptic. It suggests that at least one of Kant's transcendental arguments can in fact be understood in a way that involves very little appeal to the rest of the Kantian framework and argues that the preoccupation with transcendental arguments is not the right way to get the full picture of how Kant saw the threat of skepticism or what he took skepticism to be.

Keywords: Immanuel Kant, skepticism, transcendental arguments, philosopher, Kantian way
