Relative presuppositions are both presuppositions of one question and answers to another. Absolute presuppositions are presuppositions of questions but never answers to one. So they do not express propositions, can be neither verifiable nor falsifiable, and are neither true nor false. The study of n1etaphysics, however, is not the argumentative defence of absolute presuppositions. It is a historical discipline that articulates the absolute presuppositions of the science or history of an epoch, and it results in true or false historical statements, which are indeed metaphysical propositions, characterizing the absolute presuppositions of, for example, Greek science or history, Newtonian mechanics or modern physics.

Thus his doubts are unreal, not simply because they are logically irresoluble doubts, but because they amount to the rejection of the whole conceptual scheme within which alone such doubts make sense. (Individuals, 35, see 106, 1°9) In line with other analytic critics of scepticism, this line of argument accuses sceptical doubts about the possibility of various kinds of knowledge not of having a false conclusion, or of resting on unsound arguments, but of failing in an even more fundamental way, namely by being senseless or nonsensical.
Strawson conceded in Individuals that perhaps no philosopher has ever been, both in intention and in effect, wholly a descriptive or wholly a revisionary n1etaphysician. But one can allocate Descartes, Leibniz, and Berkeley to the class of revisionists, and Aristotle and Kant to the descriptivists. In Individuals Strawson did not elaborate further on what he meant by 'revisionary metaphysics', and did not explain in what sense revisionary metaphysics is 'at the service of descriptive metaphysics' or what enduring philosophical utility it has.
