I've just found out about this very recent book by Renata Zieminska (University of Szczecin, Poland): The History of Skepticism: In Search of Consistency (Peter Lang, 2017). Renata has published several papers on skepticism over the past few years, but I haven't had the chance to take a look at the book, so any comments on it will be welcome.

Stéphane Marchand has just called my attention to an annotated Portuguese translation, by Joseane Prezotto, of part of Sextus Empiricus's Against the Grammarians that has been published in the Brazilian journal Hypnos. It can be found here.

For those who have been wondering, the Italian journal Elenchos, which over the years has published quite a few articles on ancient skepticism, will now be published by Walter de Gruyter. First edited by Gabriele Giannantoni and then by Anna Maria Ioppolo, the journal will now be edited by Francesca Alesse, Riccardo Chiaradonna, and Emidio Spinelli. The new journal's webpage can be found here.

A peculiar book discussing arguments for and against external world skepticism was published a couple of months ago: Eli Hirsch, Radical Skepticism and the Shadow of Doubt: A Philosophical Dialogue (Bloomsbury, 2018). To get a precise idea of its approach and contents, you can read a very recent review by Samuel Lebens in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews.

My annotated bibliography on evolutionary debunking arguments in ethics has just been published in Oxford Bibliographies in Philosophy. I wrote this while editing a volume on moral skepticism. Unfortunately, I think it will be a while until I work on that topic again.
