Synopsis

The book Liberalism and Skepticism is devoted to political philosophy. It argues that there are very solid grounds to infer that libertarianism, as political order is able to provide more efficient decision-making than any other conceivable order. Methods that have been applied to support this idea turn out to be appropriate for the theory of knowledge, which points out the link between knowledge acquiring itself and the political order. Among the issues discussed in the book are Hume's and Cartesian skepticism, theory of mind as it is understood within the conception held in the book, Nozick's and Hayek's libertarianism, the concept of manipulability of the social choice theory, the cause of Nazis coming to power, and many other themes.
