Deep Disagreement and the Skeptical Problem of the Criterion

Deep disagreements arises when disagreeing parties do not share enough background agreement on substantive issues or procedures to resolve their dispute. This argumentative situation has the structure of the ancient skeptical problem of the criterion. Consequently, classical skeptical and anti-skeptical responses to the problem of the criterion provide models for how to approach deep disagreements.
