Críticas:

"Annas and Barnes are not only more faithful to the Greek and to Sextus' understanding of philosophical writing. They are also easier to understand. And when the Annas-Barnes translation makes Sextus easier to understand, Sextus becomes more accessible to the non-Greek reader: surely one of the most important goals for any translation....a welcome addition to scholars of both ancient and modern scepticism." Suzanne Abram, Canadian Philosophical Reviews

Reseña del editor:

Outlines of Scepticism, by the Greek philosopher Sextus Empiricus, is a work of major importance. It is the fullest extant account of ancient Scepticism, and also one of our most copious sources of information about the other Hellenistic philosophies. Moreover, the rediscovery of Sextus in the sixteenth century brought about a revolution in philosophy. Anyone interested in the history of philosophy must have at least an acquaintance with Sextus, and for students of Hellenistic philosophy his writings are indispensable. Julia Annas and Jonathan Barnes provide an accurate and readable English translation of the Outlines, with a short introduction and brief annotation.
