“Now more than ever we need philosophers, especially skeptics like Socrates, Descartes, Thomas Kuhn and Nagel, who seek to prevent us from becoming trapped in the cave of our beliefs”. In spite of John Horgan’s choice (the first thing the name Descartes reminds me is not skepticism), there is little doubt: we desperately need skeptics because we are sorrounded by overceonfidents.

Disable certainty to enable skepticism, which is good for dialogue, respect and improvement.
