Inquiry, Rationality, and Action in Sextus

Today I received the electronic offprint of my "Pyrrhonism, Inquiry, and Rationality," Elenchos 34 (2013): 201–228, which is a critical notice of Casey Perin's The Demands of Reason (OUP, 2010). I enjoyed writing this paper because discussing Casey's thoughtful views and arguments allowed me to restate my general interpretation of Sextus and think further about the problems raised by his Pyrrhonism.
