Philosophical skepticism (UK spelling, scepticism) is both a philosophical school of thought and a method that crosses disciplines and cultures. A skeptic critically examines the meaning systems of his/her time, and this examination usually results in a position of ambiguity or doubt. This doubt can range from disbelief in contemporary philosophical solutions, to agnosticism, to rejecting the reality of the external world.
