Renaissance scepticisms by Gianni Paganini( file )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 396 libraries worldwide
Even if specific pieces of research (on the sources or on individual authors, such as Pico, Agrippa, Erasmus, Montaigne, Sanches etc.) have given and are still producing significant results on Renaissance scepticism, an overall synthesis comprising the entire period has not been achieved yet. No predetermined idea of that complex historical subject that is Renaissance scepticism underlies this book, and we want to sacrifice the complexity of movements, personalities, tendencies and interpretations to any sort of a priori unity of theme even less. We acknowledge unhesitatingly that we had alway

Academic skepticism in seventeenth-century French philosophy : the Charronian legacy 1601-1662 by José Raimundo Maia Neto( file )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
This book is the first systematic account of Pierre Charron's influence among the major French philosophers in the period (1601-1662). It shows that Charron's Wisdom was one of the main sources of inspiration of Pierre Gassendi's first published book, the Exercitationes adversus aristoteleos. It sheds new light on La Mothe Le Vayer, who is usually viewed as a major free thinker. By showing that he was a follower of Charron, La Mothe emerges neither as a skeptical apologist nor as a disguised libertine, as combatting superstition but not as irreligious. The book shows the close presence of Charron in the preambles of Descartes' philosophy and that the cogito is mainly based on the moral Academic self-assurance of Charron's wise man. This interpretation reverses the standard view of Descartes' relation to skepticism. Once this skepticism is recognized to be Charron's Academic one, it is seen not as the target but as the source of the cogito. Pascal is the last major philosopher for whom Charron's wisdom is crucially relevant. Montaigne and Descartes influenced, respectively, Pascal's view of the Pyrrhonian skeptic and of the skeptical main arguments. The book shows that Charron's Academic skeptical wise man is one of the main targets of his projected apology for Christianity, since he considered him as a threat and counter-example of the kind of Christian view of human beings he believed. By restoring the historical philosophical relevance of Charron in early modern philosophy and arguing for the relevance of Academic skepticism in the period, this book opens a new research program to early modern scholars and will be valuable for those interested in the history of philosophy, French literature and religion
The Christianization of Pyrrhonism : scepticism and faith in Pascal, Kierkegaard, and Shestov by José Raimundo Maia Neto( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
Augustine's christianization of Plato and Thomas Aquinas's of Aristotle provided the two main foundations of medieval Judeo- Christian philosophy. In The Christianization of Pyrrhonism, José R. Maia Neto shows that Greek scepticism played a similar role in the development of a major strand of modern religious thought. From the Jansenist reaction of Molinism in the early 17th century to Shestov's resistance to the arrival of Kantian enlightenment in Russia in the late 19th century, Greek scepticism was reconstructed in terms of Christian doctrines and used against major secular philosophers who posed threats to religion. At the same time, the ancient sceptics' practical stance was attacked in order that it does not constitute a viable alternative to the modern secular philosophies. The resulting Christianized Pyrrhonism would be the basis for a genuine Christian or Biblical thought, for the first time emancipated from the rationalist assumptions and methods of Greek philosophy. The Christianization of Pyrrhonism is extremely valuable for those interested in the modern developments of ancient scepticism, in the relations between religious and philosophical ideas in modernity, and for scholars and the general public interested in Pascal, Kierkegaard and Shestov
Skepticism in Renaissance and post-Renaissance thought : new interpretations ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
Skepticism : an anthology ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 96 libraries worldwide
"Skepticism: An Anthology offers selections from many of the major Western philosophers who have grappled with the two main questions of epistemology: What can we know? and How do we know it? The skeptical tradition questioned the veracity of many knowledge claims and the means by which that knowledge was supposedly obtained in order to reach the core of what could truly be known. This volume contains the principal texts of the skeptical tradition from its origins in antiquity to contemporary philosophy. Selections include the writings of both well-known philosophers of the Western tradition - such as Montaigne, Descartes, Pascal, Locke, Hume, Voltaire, Diderot, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, James, Wittgenstein, Feyerabend, and Fogelin - and lesser-known but influential philosophers including Hervet, Charron, Sanchez, Gassendi, Crousaz, Schulze, and Shestov - who either advanced skeptical views or dealt with skeptical issues in order to confront some specific problems in philosophy or religion. The editors' introduction to the origins, kinds, and significance of philosophical skepticism places the readings in their appropriate historical contexts. Richard H. Popkin and Jose R. Maia Neto have also added brief discussions about each philosopher and the selections included in the anthology, plus a selected bibliography, which lists the main secondary literature on ancient, modern, and contemporary skepticism." "This collection is an introduction to an enduring and profoundly influential school of thought as well as stimulating reading for anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of humankind's unending desire to learn more about itself and the world."--BOOK JACKET
