Críticas:

A thought provoking exercise in comparative philosophy. This book allows us to interrogate the meaning of Pyrrhonism in light of Madhyamaka Buddhism and vice versa. The result will be of great interest to students of both traditions. -- Sara Ahbel-Rappe, author of Reading Platonism: Non-discursive Thinking in the Texts of Plotinus, Proclus, and Damascus In promoting cross-cultural understanding and the quest for linkages between Greek and Buddhist philosophies, the book has paved a radiant path reflecting the continuity of traditions since the third century BCE. -- Rana P.B. Singh, Banaras Hindu University The connections between Greek Pyrrhonism and Indian Madhyamaka are too striking to ignore. Kuzminski provides welcome attention to the philosophical vision they share and to the arguments Pyrrhonists and madhyamikas deploy to advance that vision. The exposition is clear and accessible to the non-specialist. -- Jay L. Garfield, Smith College Throughout this book, Kuzminski boldly challenges an intimidating array of scholars and philosophers in an attempt to show how Pyrrhonism has often been misunderstood. Considering the brevity of the work, Kuzminski is remarkably successful...Kuzminski's study is a welcome addition to the literature on this topic in that he show the benefit of a comparative analysis with Buddhism for a more nuanced understanding of the issues. Philosophy East and West, July 2010 Kuzminski does a commendable job of pointing out the marked similarities or congruencies between Indian Buddhism and Pyrrhonism. Moreover, what I found particularly interesting and fruitful -something not often discussed in much detail in the Pyrrhonist literature- were the sections devoted to an examination of the sort of practical life adherence to Pyrrhonist (and Buddhist) attitudes yield. This, in particular, is sure to spark or encourage further enquiry. Journal Of Buddhist Ethics
