Summary/Abstract: In this paper we approach Eugeniu Sperantia’s contributions to the theory of knowledge, by focusing on the topic of skepticism. We first discuss Sperantia’s subjectivist theory of perception, showing that it fatally entails skepticism about the external world and other minds. Then we discuss Sperantia’s overcoming of the limits of his own theory of perception in the framework of an commonsensist epistemology inspired by Hamilton. Finally we emphasize the non-evidentialist features of Sperantia’s brand of foundationalism.
