About the Authors
  • By far the most detailed surviving examination by any ancient Greek sceptic of epistemology and logic, this work critically reviews the pretensions of non-sceptical philosophers, to have discovered methods for determining the truth, either through direct observation or by inference from the observed to the unobserved. A fine example of the Pyrrhonist sceptical method at work, it also provides extensive information about the ideas of other Greek thinkers, which in many instances, are poorly preserved in other sources.

    • Key Pyrrhonist sceptical text and important source for many earlier Greek ideas
    • New and accurate translation
    • Accessible and helpful explanatory material

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this is an excellent work. It is a valuable new tool for the study both of Sextan Pyrrhonism and of the logical and epistemological doctrines expounded in AD I-II, and will no doubt become the standard English translation of these books in the years to come. Bett has proved, once again, that he is one of the leading specialists in Pyrrhonian skepticism."
    --Diego E. Machuca, Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (Argentina), Bryn Mawr Classical Review
