This chapter discusses an article Hegel published in the Critical Journal of Philosophy (in 1802) on the relation of philosophy to scepticism. It is shown that Hegel's attack on Schulze's scepticism — his strong rejection of Schulze's sceptical demands, taking the demands to be an expression, crude though they be, of distinctively modern epistemological demands — far from expressing Hegel's dismissal of epistemological scruples, itself expresses his strong epistemological scruples. Taking Hegel's case against Schulze's scepticism as a case against distinctively modern scepticism in general, Hegel's case calls to mind a strand of criticism of Cartesian or modern scepticism familiar to us in contemporary philosophy.

Keywords:   scepticism, Schulze, philosophy, epistemological demand
