Kripke's Skepticism

Kripke's Skepticism

Saul Kripke was an American psychologist who asked questions about the rules of life. He was skeptical about the correctness of the rules and they way we choose to use it.

He argued, "can we ever be entirely sure that we're applying the rules of life correctly?"

This is not only just for the language we speak, but it could also be applied to mathematics, but we latch on the the principle of what is given.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

There are rules that we follow in our lives, may we be conscious of it or not. It could be a rule of etiquette such as not to sneeze directly at a person, or the unspoken rules that apply to how we speak our language and understand concepts.

The argument of Kripke remains an interesting thought: How do we know that we're doing anything properly? But Wittgenstenians -- the group of people who support the theories of Ludwig wittgenstein -- argue that Kripke is missing the point.
