A single argument template — the EPH template — can be used to generate versions of the best-known and most challenging sceptical problems. In Knowledge and its Limits, Timothy Williamson presents a theory of knowledge and evidence which he clearly intends to provide a response to scepticism in its most important forms. This chapter lays out EPH scepticism and reviews possible ways of responding to it. It then shows how elements of Williamson's theory motivate a hitherto unexplored way of responding to EPH-generated sceptical arguments. It offers reasons to doubt the correctness of Williamson's response.

Keywords:   EPH template, knowledge, Timothy Williamson, sceptical problems, theory of knowledge, evidence, scepticism
