Pyrrhonian Skepticism

Walter Sinnott-Armstrong


Skepticism poses a central challenge in epistemology, but its opponents focus on Cartesian or Academic skepticism, whereas almost all actual defenders of skepticism are Pyrrhonians who suspend belief about Cartesian skepticism and its denial. To remedy this imbalance, this volume explores the history of Pyrrhonian skepticism and then looks at objections to Pyrrhonian skepticism and its relation to other alternatives in contemporary epistemology.

Keywords: epistemology, skepticism, Pyrrhonism, Pyrrhonian skepticism, Cartesian skepticism, Academic skepticism
