New Translation of Sextus's Against the Physicists

Last month, CUP published Richard Bett's translation of Sextus Empiricus's Against the Physicists. More information can be found here. I haven't taken a look at the translation yet, but I'll try to get a copy soon. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first English translation of the two books of Against the Physicists since Bury's (1936).

Plato and Irrationality

Yesterday I came back from Colombia, where I gave two talks on ancient skepticism. There I met the members of the research group Peiras, some of whom are now working in this area. I also got a copy of  this interesting new book: Platón y la irracionalidad, edited by Andrea Lozano. More information can be found here.
