Hamburg Skepticism Conference

Talks in Fribourg and Berlin

In the upcoming weeks, I'm giving a couple of “skeptical” talks at colloquia in Europe: on May 3 (17:15-19:00), “Agrippan Pyrrhonism, Questionable Assumptions, and the Epistemic Challenge of Disagreement” at the Université de Fribourg (Switzerland); and on May 15 (10:00-12:00), “The Practical and Epistemic Value of Pyrrhonism” at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin.
