Some authors have recently defended a skeptical view on the moral significance of disgust: feelings of disgust are irrelevant to the epistemic justification of moral judgments and norms. An article has just been published in Philosophers' Imprint challenging that view: “Foul Behavior,” by Victor Kumar. It can be accessed for free here.

Quite a few years ago, I read that Roland Wittwer (Berlin) was working on a book about the first Latin translation of Sextus's Pyrrhonian Outlines. The title was supposed to be something like Sextus Latinus: Die erste lateinische Übersetzung von Sextus Empiricus' Pyrrôneioi Hypotypôseis. A couple of days ago, I discovered by chance that in the end he published an article on the issue: “Sextus Empiricus' Outlines of Pyrrhonism in the Middle Ages,” Vivarium 54 (2016). He calls into question the widely accepted view that Niccolò da Reggio was the author of that Latin translation of the Outlines. To read the article, click here.
