Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Original Sceptics contains a wealth of analysis, argument and philological comment, and it undoubtedly succeeds in making the reader aware of the difficulties involved in discovering what the ancient sceptics really held. --F. C. White, Australasian Journal of Philosophy
