This talk analyzes two short texts where Peirce sketches out an anti-skeptical argument inspired by Kant’s Refutation of Idealism. I first consider why Peirce found Kant’s argument interesting and promising, given that it is often regarded as problematic and unsuccessful. I will then briefly reconstruct Kant’s Refutation, highlighting its most problematic passages. Moreover, since Peirce’s own version of the argument relies on Kant’s views regarding the temporal structure of consciousness, I will explain how Peirce tackles this issue in “The Law of Mind.” Finally, I consider Peirce’s own anti-skeptical argument and examine whether and how it can be seen as appropriating Kant’s strategy.
