The word solipsistic means “of, or characterized by, solipsism (the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist)”.

First usage

Our word came into English in the late 1800s

Background / Comments

Our word comes the combination of the noun solipsism and -istic (a suffix used to create adjectives from nouns). The word solipsism is from sol- (alone; only) combined with the Latin word ipse (self).
