Description
CHAPTER 3: OTHER MINDS.  o Special kind of skepticism – that the physical world you seem to see and feel  around you including your own body really exists.  o This is skepticism about the nature or even existence of minds or experiences  other than your own.  o We do not know much about other peoples minds, we just observe their bodies  and behaviors.  o None of these will give you direct access to their thoughts and feelings the only  experiences you can actually have are your own.  o If you believe anything about the mental lives of others it is on the basis of  observing their physical construction and behavior.  o Example: when you and your friend are having icecream how do you know the  chocolate flavor tastes the same to them as it does to you? – there seems to be no  way to compare the two flavor experiences directly.  o Argument: you can say since you are both humans you can both distinguish the  two flavors with your eyes closed its likely your flavor experiences are similar.  o
