(p.71) 4 Modest Transcendental Arguments
Essays on Skepticism

Anthony Brueckner

Oxford University Press

This chapter is about Stroud's recent attempt to circumvent his earlier claim that Kantian transcendent arguments are doomed to failure. Stroud uses ideas from Donald Davidson concerning radical interpretation to show that one cannot coherently believe that there is not an external world whose states are correlated with one's true beliefs about the states. It is argued that Stroud's modest strategy fails.

Keywords:   Kant, Stroud, Donald Davidson, transcendental argument, Strawson
