Pyrrhonism Past and Present

Next week (May 13, 14 & 16), I will give a lecture series titled "Pyrrhonism Past and Present" at the Universidade de São Paulo (USP) and at the Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP). The lecture series will consist of three talks on Sextus Empiricus's Pyrrhonism, Robert Fogelin's neo-Pyrrhonism, and Oswaldo Porchat's neo-Pyrrhonism. I'm grateful to Plínio Junqueira Smith for the invitation, which will give me the opportunity to discuss both my interpretation of Pyrrhonism and my own Pyrrhonian stance.
