Seeger, Max (15. September 2011): The Critique from Experimental Philosophy: Can Philosophical Intuitions Be Externally Corroborated? XXII. Deutscher Kongress für Philosophie, 11. - 15. September 2011, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.


Jonathan Weinberg (2007) criticizes so called armchair philosophers’ appeals to intuitions. Faulty intuitions, so the argument, cannot be detected and corrected since (among other reasons) intuitions cannot be corroborated by external evidence. I press a dilemma against Weinberg. On a broad reading of ‘corroboration’, Weinberg has not established that intuitions lack external corroboration. On a narrow reading, his critique is self-undermining and issues into general skepticism.
