Olaf Müller: Gehirn im Tank

“Seit den Matrix-Filmen streiten sich Informatiker und Laien, ob alle unsere Erlebnisse und Eindrücke der Welt vollständig auf Computersimulation beruhen könnten. Olaf L. Müller behauptet, dass der Streit längst entschieden ist: durch einen völlig neuartigen Beweis, dessen geniale Grundidee der Harvard-Philosoph Hilary Putnam im Jahr 1981 publiziert hat. Wie sich zweifelsfrei demonstrieren lässt, ist die Welt garantiert keine Illusion aus dem Simulationscomputer.”

Certain Doubts

Certain Doubts

Certain Doubts, a blog devoted to matters epistemic, began on June 9, 2004. The blog was originally sponsored by the University of Missouri when its administrator Jonathan L. Kvanvig was professor of philosophy and chair of the philosophy department there. It has since moved to Baylor University, being housed there since the fall of 2006.

The list of contributors is a who’s who of contemporary epistemology, and any epistemologists who are not on the list should feel free to contact the site administrator if they wish to be a contributor.
