Pyrrhonian skepticism and Gödel’s second incompleteness theorem

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article compares the Pyrrhonian skepticism with the interpretations of Gödel's Second Theorem as a skeptical challenge in modern mathematics. It is shown that the epistemological framework of Gödel's restrictive theorems fits into the skeptical reflection scheme of Sextus Empiricus.
