J. L. Schellenberg (Mount Saint Vincent University) has recently published the third volume in a trilogy in the field of philosophy of religion: The Will to Imagine: A Justification of Skeptical Religion (Cornell UP, 2009). For information about the book, go here. A review has just appeared in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews. In a previous post from 2008 I referred to the second volume: The Wisdom to Doubt: A Justification of Religious Skepticism.

I'm looking for the following paper by Barnes: "An Aristotelian Way with Scepticism" (in M. Matthen (ed.), Aristotle Today. Essays on Aristotle's Ideal of Science, Edmonton 1987), but it's turned out to be difficult to find. So any help is most welcome.

Fabien Schang has let me know that there will be a series of radio talks about skepticism during this week, from today to Friday, from 10 to 11am (France time). This forms part of the program "Les Nouveaux Chemins de la Connaissance" on France Culture. Here is the link. I'm somehow surprised by the fact that in France and Germany one can still find this kind of radio talks.
Update: Guillaume Dye has talked about ancient skepticism (especially Sextus) and Frédéric Brahami will talk about Montaigne. There will also be a talk on Pascal.
