Abstract

ROLLA, Giovanni. ON ENVATTMENT - DISJUNCTIVISM, SKEPTICAL SCENARIOS AND RATIONALITY. Kriterion [online]. 2016, vol.57, n.134, pp.525-544. ISSN 0100-512X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0100-512x2016n13409gr.

The aim of this paper is two-fold: first, it is intended to articulate theses that are often assessed independently, thus showing that a strong version of epistemological disjunctivism about perceptual knowledge implies a transformative conception of rationality. This entails that individuals in skeptical scenarios could not entertain rational thoughts about their environment, for they would fail to have perceptual states. The secondary aim is to show that this consequence is not a sufficient reason to abandon the variety of disjunctivism presented. The argument for this claim depends on the assessment of rationality attributions to subjects in plausible cases of illusion and some clinical cases of hallucination.

Keywords : Skeptical scenarios; Disjunctivism; Conceptualism; Rationality; Hallucination; Illusion.
