Fogelin's New Book Project

Robert Fogelin is working on a new book: Pyrrhonian Reflections on Meaning and Truth. It will be the companion to his well-known Pyrrhonian Reflections on Knowledge and Justification (OUP, 1994), in which he examines how the argumentative strategies found in Sextus Empiricus’ works can be applied to present-day epistemological debates. He claims that the contemporary epistemological theories he considers – namely, foundationalism and coherentism – cannot meet the challenge posed by the Modes of Agrippa. As you probably know, Fogelin describes his own outlook as neo-Pyrrhonian.
