- n. Plural form of fallibilist.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A-la Mill, we might be fallibilists who think that when intelligent and reasonable people disagree so deeply, everyone ought to be cautious about enforcing their own view.
The possibility of error provides us with reason to be ˜contrite fallibilists™, aware that any of our opinions may, for all we know, require revision in the future, but it does not provide us with any reason for skepticism.
