But the considerations are bolstered by decidedly contemporary considerations from the causal theory of reference. I can make this clear by putting the argument informally as follows. Rocks are those things right there and I can point at some.

Those are what we call "rocks". Now just what their "ultimate nature" may be, we may not know and it may be a senseless question. But that is neither here nor there. Even though we might have reason to change our minds about this or that property of rocks, perhaps even to the point of deciding that rocks were not material substances, but that they were bundles of sensations produced by a brain stimulating scientist, still we know that there are rocks.

We cannot be deceived into falsely believing that there are rocks; we know that there are rocks. As presented, this argument is indifferent to whether we hold that transcendental metaphysical theories are meaningful or not; the argument concludes that in any case we cannot be now being deceived about the existence of rocks. We all can know how the term "rock" is used; from the fact that it has an extension it follows that there are rocks. Now it certainly is not the case that you supposed that rocks are bundles of sensations.

But then it is certainly not the case that men always thought that the sun was a ball of hydrogen undergoing fusion, nor that rocks were bundles of moving charged particles. These were surprises! But it was the sun, that thing over men's heads during the day which they called "the sun", which was found to be other than as it had been thought.

There never was any question of finding out that the sun did not exist after all just because it wasn't a ball of fire I am supposing that fusion is not fire; the sun is too hot to support combustion, and fire is a sort of combustion. And as far as transcendent, metaphysical accounts of ordinary things are concerned, these have often changed without existential consequence for the description of daily affairs.

Even if Berkeley's account were the correct metaphysics, there would be rocks, as he stoutly asserted -- it is just that they would not be what materialists and perhaps contrary to the Bishop's own view of the learned the educated take them to be. And so you see that the account I have given you of your existence is really not a great deal different from Berkeley's account in respects relevant to the skeptical argument: rather than being ideas in God's mind, rocks are ideas in your mind with causes in my equipment.

So the argument for the dilemma goes. Sorry to be so long-winded.

The upshot of it is that I cannot deceive you about such a matter as the existence of rocks, so the skeptical argument fails. Biat: Well, it does seem to me that the dilemma which you advance is certainly a valid argument. And clearly its success in refuting skepticism depends upon the truth of the claim that even if one's putative experience of rocks is generated by a scientist, he cannot deceive us as to the existence of rocks.

It is clear that things are not as I had supposed them to be. But it is also clear that the difference, transcendental as it is, will make no difference whatever to my experience. While I continue to believe, we will suppose, that there is a real transcendent world, in which world I and you the scientist and perhaps other tankbound persons like myself exist, my experience is related to that world in a way quite other than that in which I thought it was.

Evil: Nevertheless, tomorrow you will face the same general run of experience and face your apparent companions with whom you must continue to communicate if you are not to be subjected to the unpleasantries befalling the anti-social. But behind the scenes my computer will run as usual, following the general patterns imposed by its program, a pattern which you have come to know and which you call "laws of nature" and use to anticipate your future experience.

Biat: So you assure me. But given all this, are there rocks or not? I do not think that it is clear at this point, despite your argument, just what one should say. It has been revealed to me that all of my sensory experience is generated by someone, you, stimulating my brain.

Created by

And our question is whether I ought say that there were such things as rocks without considering what there is out there in your world where there may be rocks. In particular, ought I say that rocks just turned out to be rock-sensations, which certainly do exist? I think the answer to this question must be negative. The main reason is the presence of the extreme ontological contrast between my experience and, on the other hand, the existence of you the scientist and my brain. You and all the objects in your world, including my brain, I suppose to exist, although I do not know what many of those objects are.

But if they exist, if that is what it is to exist, and if they are distinct from my sensations, then rocks can be distinguished from rock-sensations. I know what it would be for rocks to really exist, that is, for it to be the case that there exists you, Evil, my brain, and rocks perhaps with my brain resting in its tank on a large rock. The rocks which I thought I saw and threw and sat on do not exist, are not really objects at all, although real rocks may exist along with my brain and you in San Francisco.

So I claim that the third premise of the constructive dilemma is false; rocks cannot be discovered to be identical with sensations generated by you or anyone nor can they be identified with just spontaneously occurring sensations. The third premise of your dilemma involves the claim that a stimulating scientist could not deceive the beings whose brains he stimulates with regard to the existence of rocks, for rocks would exist as a result of his attempted deception -- rocks would be the product of his stimulation.

I believe this is the gist of your and Bouwsma's argument.

But this is not plausible. The discovery of you, a brain stimulating scientist, compels me to consider another more inclusive viewpoint on the matter. From your standpoint, my experience is not of any existent objects although my experience is generated by existent laboratory equipment. There are no objects corresponding to my rock-experience although there may be objects corresponding to my concept of rock in the world in which you and my brain exist -- but such objects are not appropriately causally connected to my experience.

I can appreciate this fact even though I am the one having the rock-experience, just as a victim of hallucinations may appreciate the fact that he is hallucinating without thereby diminishing the vividness of the hallucinations. Finally, as I have mentioned, once aware of what is going on, I must leave open the possibility that there really are rocks somewhere, and that in fact the tank in which my brain rests itself is supported on a large and handsome rock.

But leaving that possibility open is clearly inconsistent with identifying rocks with the sensations I have in the tank. Tanks cannot rest upon rock-sensations, only upon rocks. Since I must leave open the possibility that rocks exist apart from my rock-experience, I cannot identify any part of my subjective experience with rocks. Real rocks cannot be sensations; what I experience in the tank are not really rocks.

Evil: I'm not so sure about that. Mooreover, it seems that an objector might still argue as follows. He says, holding up his hands, "these are hands". Could it be that he is mistaken about this? I therefore know that these are hands. Biat: Well, even if we suppose that he is in fact holding up his hands, it seems clear to me that neither we nor he know that this is the case. We could be, for all we know, now being deceived into falsely believing that he is holding up his hands by powerful deceivers such as yourself. Similarly, he cannot know that that which he is holding up, if he is holding anything up, is what was ostensibly defined as a hand.

Suppose that your objector then once more holds up his hand and says this: "I hereby define this he looks at and shakes his hand as a mitt.
