Many people find their encounter with sceptical arguments to be puzzling. A few even find them disturbing enough to warrant writing refutations. Nathan’s approach is different. He is willing to concede that some sceptical arguments are sound; he denies, however, that this matters. The conjecture that Nathan tests in this book is that “no sound sceptical argument has a conclusion whose truth value is anything but a matter of indifference”. His focus, then, is not so much on the sceptical arguments themselves as on our reactions to them
