Solipsism is the philosophical position that the only justified belief is that one's own mind exists. Anything external lacks absolute certainty and is thusly uncertain and untrustworthy.

Criticism

  • Lacking absolute certainty does not inhibit one from making consistently good decisions. Therefore, Solipsism is a position that can be rejected as meaningless.
  • If, in fact, one was to believe one was the sole entity in reality, one runs the risk of making decisions that could possibly injur oneself and/or others.
