Synopsis Although sceptical attitudes can be traced back to various Presocratic philosophers, Scepticism became a school of philosophy principally in the Hellenistic period and as a philosophical tradition has been influential ever since. 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.This 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 students why ancient Scepticism remains philosophically interesting, and for those who continue their study, the book prepares them to more actively engage with the complexities of the fragmentary evidence and gives them a general survey of current scholarship.
