Also in 2005, Brigitte Pérez-Jean published her Dogmatisme et scepticisme: L’héraclitisme d’Énésidème (Lille: Septentrion). As I said in a previous post, I haven't read this book yet, but I assume that it will be interesting to compare Pérez-Jean's view with that defended in Roberto Polito's The Sceptical Road. You'll find more info here. (Note that, although the site says that the book appeared in 2006, my copy says that it was published in 2005).

It seems to me that these days there is a revived interest in the Aenesideman variety of Pyrrhonism. In a future post, I'll refer to Brigitte Pérez's book on Aenesidemus, which I haven't had to time to read yet. In this regard, it is also worth mentioning that Polito is working on an edition of the fragments of Aenesidemus, although I don't know when he's planning to finish this book.

Flückiger (Privatdozent at Universität Freiburg, Switzerland) examines the challenge that Pyrrhonian skepticism still poses nowadays by analyzing the neo-Pyrrhonism of Odo Marquard and the positions of Richard Rorty and Hans Albert. For more information, take a look at here.

1. Sextus Empiricus, Contre les professeurs. Paris: Éditions du Seuil.
Floridi offers an exhaustive and rigorous examination of the transmission of Sextus' extant writings from late antiquity until modern times. Information about the book is found here.
One of the interesting aspects of Bailey's book is that it shows that the skeptical stance found in Sextus' works has a great deal to contribute to present-day epistemological discussions. Information about this work is found here.
