Cicero's Academica

I've realized that last year I forgot to refer to Charles Brittain's Cicero: On Academic Scepticism (Hackett, 2006). As far as I can tell, the translation is very good and the introduction is excellent. (I wrote a review of it for BMCR.) Regarding the Academica, I should also mention (i) that Tobias Reinhardt is working on a critical edition and a philosophical and philological commentary (see here) to be published by Oxford University Press, and (ii) that Carlos Lévy is working on a project that will include a new edition of the text (by two scholars whose names I don't remember now) and a translation (by him) to be published (I think) by the Collection des Universitaires de France.
