Pyrrhonism and Inquiry

I'd like to let you know about the latest paper on Sextan Pyrrhonism by Filip Grgić (Zagreb): "Investigative and Suspensive Scepticism," European Journal of Philosophy. The article hasn't appeared in print yet, but it has already been published online here. If you're interested in Pyrrhonism, you should definitely read it.
