Skepticism about Presented Knowledge
I have been presented with various information about the world. The Earth is round. Is the Earth round? How do I know? The Sun revolves around the Earth. Does the Sun go around the Earth? How do I know? I haven’t figured it out for myself, have I? I can follow this line of questioning anywhere. Certain things in this world are pretty much accepted by people regardless of whether they have been personally observed. This end of the scale could be called “Agreed Presented Knowledge”.
