"Skepticism" formally it a philosophical word used by early philosophers. Skepticism is a questioning attitude or doubt toward one or more items.


In Greece philosophers as early as Xenophenese(c. 570 – c. 475 BC) expressed skeptical views, as did Democritus and a number of Sophists. Gorgians, for example, reputedly argued that nothing exists, that even if there were something we could not know it, and that even if we could know it we could not communicate it.


Excluding dielectric, skepticism is the way to dig deep knowledge on any topic.
