To be able to know nothing, to cast doubt on knowledge or to exclude certainty is as popular as it is controversial in philosophy. Since ancient times, philosophers have always asked: Is that true? Couldn't it be the other way around? How do you know? They shake not only moral truths, but also the foundations of our understanding of the world, on which most sciences are based, by questioning causality, induction conclusions or free will. The booklet offers answers that have been prepared for teaching practice by referring to philosophical classics such as Aristotle, Descartes, Hume and Kant, but also to more recent positions such as Constructivism and New Realism.

The editable Word documents for this issue can be found under the item "Material supplementary to the booklet" in the detail view of the respective article.
