Harald Thorsrud provides a comprehensive introduction to the central themes, arguments and general concerns of ancient Scepticism from its beginnings with Pyrrho of Elis (c.360-c.270 BC) to the writings of Sextus Empiricus in the second century AD. The book explores the differences between individual sceptics and examines the traditional separation of the Academic sceptics from Pyrrhonism. The prolonged controversy that pitted the Academic sceptics against the Stoics is charted as well as how ancient Scepticism differed from its more modern manifestations. The book shows why ancient scepticism remains philosophically interesting. History.
