It is claimed that McDowell's treatment of scepticism offers a potential way of resurrecting the much-derided 'Moorean' response to scepticism in a fashion that avoids the problems facing classical internalist and externalist construals of neo-Mooreanism. This chapter evaluates the prospects for a McDowellian neo-Mooreanism and offers further support for the view.
