Sextus Empiricus: Against Those in the Disciplines

Translated with introduction and notes

Richard Bett

  • A neglected work by one of the great ancient philosophers
  • A clear, accurate, and idiomatic translation by a leading Sextus scholar
  • The only other complete English translation was published in 1949 and is inadequate for a full understanding of the work
  • Bett offers a contextualizing introduction, an outline of the argument, extensive explanatory notes, glossary, a guide to persons referred to, and a list of parallel passages in other works by Sextus
