Abstract

The formulae “perhaps” and “perhaps not,” […] we adopt in place of “perhaps it is and perhaps it is not” […]. But here again we do not fight about phrases […] these expressions are indicative of non-assertion. Sextus Empiricus, Outlines of Pyrrhonism
One could spend years on […] the perhaps […] whose modality will render fictional and fragile everything that follows […]. One does not testify in court and before the law with “perhaps.” Jacques Derrida, Demeure: Fiction and Testimony
