Two of these, the thesis that I have a privileged form of access to and knowledge of my own mind and the thesis that there is no conceptual or logically necessary link between the mental and the physical, have been dealt with above. If the foregoing is correct, both theses are false. This leaves us with the final presupposition underlying solipsism, that all experiences are necessarily that is logically private to the individual whose experiences they are.
No two people can ever be said to have the same experience. This again introduces the problem of how one person can know the experiences of another or, more radically, how one can know that another person has experiences at all. Wittgenstein offers a comprehensive critique of this view.
He attacks the notion that experience is necessarily private. His arguments against this are complex, if highly compressed and rather oracular. For more detailed accounts, see Kenny, A. Something is private to me in the first sense if only I can know it; it is private to me in the second sense if only I can have it.
Thus the thesis that experience is necessarily private can mean one of two things, which are not always discriminated from each other with sufficient care: a only I can know my experiences or b only I can have my experiences. Wittgenstein argues that the first of these is false and the second is true in a sense that does not make experience necessarily private, as follows:. Thesis i is, literally, nonsense: it cannot be meaningfully asserted of me that I know that I am in pain.
Investigations, I. For this reason it cannot be governed by an epistemic operator. Thesis ii — other people cannot know that I am in pain when I am in pain — is false.
Indeed, in cases where the pain is extreme, it is often impossible to prevent others from knowing this even when one wishes to do so. It thus transpires that neither thesis i nor ii is true. Another person can have the same pain as me. Another person, however, cannot have my pains. My pains are the ones that, if they are expressed at all, are expressed by me. But by exactly the same grammatical token, another person cannot have my blushes, sneezes, frowns, fears, and so forth.
It is true that I may deliberately and successfully keep an experience to myself, in which case that particular experience might be said to be private to me. But I might do this by articulating it in a language that those with whom I was conversing do not understand. There is clearly nothing occult or mysterious about this kind of privacy. Investigations , II. Similarly, experience that I do not or cannot keep to myself is not private.
In short, some experiences are private and some are not. Even though some experiences are private in this sense, it does not follow that all experiences could be private. It does not follow from the fact that some orders are not obeyed that all orders might never be obeyed. With the belief in the essential privacy of experience eliminated as false, the last presupposition underlying solipsism is removed and solipsism is shown as foundationless, in theory and in fact. One might even say, solipsism is necessarily foundationless, for to make an appeal to logical rules or empirical evidence the solipsist would implicitly have to affirm the very thing that he purportedly refuses to believe: the reality of intersubjectively valid criteria and a public, extra-mental world.
There is a temptation to say that solipsism is a false philosophical theory, but this is not quite strong or accurate enough.
As a theory, it is incoherent. What makes it incoherent, above all else, is that the solipsist requires a language that is a sign-system to think or to affirm his solipsistic thoughts at all. Given this, it is scarcely surprising that those philosophers who accept the Cartesian premises that make solipsism apparently plausible, if not inescapable, have also invariably assumed that language-usage is itself essentially private.
Language is an irreducibly public form of life that is encountered in specifically social contexts. The meaning of a word is its publicly accessible use in a language. To question, argue, or doubt is to utilize language in a particular way. Date: Su, Lyrics on CD in Hungarian.

Solipsismus jako pojem se objevil v století jako radikální epistemologická skepse, pokud jde o poznání světa a myslí druhých lidí. Vychází z metodického pochybování Descartova, který poslední filosofickou jistotu založil právě na (hypotetické) pochybnosti o všem, včetně smyslového poznání, v níž se jako nepochybné ukáže pouze „myslím, tedy jsem“.
