Title: Knowledge and Argumentation.
Skeptical arguments are usually understood as making a significant claim about the limits of knowledge. In my paper, I will suggest that many skeptical arguments should be rather reinterpreted as teaching us a lesson about the limits of argumentation. Moreover, I will sketch how a theory of argumentation and its limits can be built on reinterpretations of traditional skeptical arguments.
