Two Positions at Uppsala University


Yesterday, I received an email about two new positions at Uppsala University, one as Chair in Theoretical Philosophy and one as Chair in Aesthetics. Information can be found here and here, respectively. To the best of my knowledge, Uppsala is an excellent university and these two positions look quite attractive.

Another Volume on Pyrrhonism

The volume New Essays on Ancient Pyrrhonism (Brill) is now out, too. Full information can be found here. It's just coincidence that this volume and the one mentioned in the previous post have come out at the same time. They are both "a little" pricey, but you'll probably be able to find them at your university library.

This may look like shameless self-publicitiy, but in my defense I could say that the two books are collective projects involving eighteen other scholars.
