Pyrrhonian Reflections on Knowledge and Justification

Robert J. Fogelin


This work addresses the following question: What would be the consequence of allowing a representative of ancient Pyrrhonian scepticism to become a party to contemporary debates in theory of knowledge? The conclusion of this work is that most of our contemporary epistemologists would fare badly in this encounter.

Keywords: Agrippa, Laurence BonJour, Roderick Chisholm, coherentism, Donald Davidson, foundationalism, Gettier problem, justification, knowledge, Pyrrhonism, Sextus Empiricus, skepticism
