"...Although some fine general presentations of Greco-Roman scepticism have recently appeared in print, the advantage of this book lies in its variety of approaches and interpretations. This will allow the reader to better appreciate the historical, exegetical, and philosophical complexity faced by anyone exploring the ancient sceptical traditions. Richard Bett has assembled a prestigious line-up of contributors, most of whom are renowned specialists.... this volume will become an indispensable reference book for students and non-specialists, but even scholars of ancient scepticism will find among these essays new and challenging interpretations with which to engage."
--Diego E. Machuca, Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas, Argentina, British Journal for the History of Philosophy
