review ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ò Sextus Empiricus Sextus Empiricus Ò 8 read summary Sextus Empiricus Outlines of Scepticism 108 Outlines of Scepticism by the Greek philosopher Sextus Empiricus is a work of major importance for the history of Greek philosophy It is the fullest extant account of ancient skepticism and it is also. When you take some honey it tastes good to you there is no denying in that But is honey truly in its essence sweet Some are disgusted by the taste of honey and they can argue the opposite that honey is not sweet so why bother arguing in the first place when it comes to true nature of external objects Not bothering to argue and being convinced that we can t come to a conclusion leads to happiness and a relaxed mind I guess Skeptics argueNow there are two methods Ten Modes and Five Modes The first is older and not as structured and logical as the second one in my opinion Nonetheless Sextus suggest that Skeptics didn t come up with Five Modes to reject the Ten Modes but to provide various ways to refute Dogmatics whom Skeptics are doing their best to convince us and them that they do not hold the truth In first book these modes tools methods are outlined in second and last book these modes are used to attack Dogmatics beliefs on Logic Natural Sciences and EthicsReading the book I learned that Skepticism is not as dumb as it s portrayed in other resources Skepticism is not self refuting they do not say everything is wrong which logically leads to Skepticism itself to be wrong Sextus is saying that if you ask me whether we are in Athens or not I ll boldly answer we are in Athens but for external objects appearances that we experience through our senses that is highly arguable I find honey to be sweet and I do enjoy it but I can t say honey in itself sweet or else all humans should feel the same a nice weather is a better example old people will say it s too cold Marrying your sister is wrong That is culture related not by itself is wrong Skeptics don t say everything is inapprehensible they say we just can t make a conclusion on the things we looked at so far namely Dogmatics beliefs This book is very comprehensive and dense as if it was a textbook for Skepticism My critiue however is that Skepticism was a reaction to Dogmatics who for sake of discussion claim they have the ultimate truth and Skeptics are showing us we can t hold ultimate truth so why try We can agree on not being able to but for sake of practicality we should do our best empirically to reach the truth We can t fine the truth solution to cancer but nonetheless we should come up with treatments that are good enough Here comes Fallibility which is taken for granted in Natural Sciences Fallibility can be considered an offshoot of Skepticism they both agree on not holding the truth but the Fallibilists are at least trying Ten Modes are of 3 types concerning Subjects that are perceiving concerning Objects that are being perceived and the mixture of both1st mode of the ten is Animals Subject some things taste good to animals but taste bad for humans thus we can t say whether the thing in essence tastes bad or good2nd is Humans Subject some humans find pizza to taste good but others bad When it comes to pizza I m DOGMATIC SO F K YOU PIZZA IS AWESOME3rd is Senses Subject perfume smells good but tastes bad4th is Circumstances Subject some whether feels cold to old people but cool to youngsters and when you re in love your ugly girlfriend looks beautiful HE ACTUALLY USED THIS EXACT EXAMPLE LOL5th is Position Mixture a rod looks tilted when submerged in water6th is Admixture Mixture skin color is different whether air is cold or hot7th is uantity Object a piece of marble by itself look white but in a group looks yellow grains of sand look rough but in uantity look smooth drinking some wine fortifies us but too much uantity makes us wasted Same goes with eating just the right amount of food or too much Food whether healthy or not is obviously relative to uantity thus we can t say whether it s healthy or not in its essence8th is Relativity Mixture see 7th9th is Rarity Mixture though the sun is greater than comets we get shocked seeing comets because we aren t used to them same goes to one who first sees sea If gold was as common as stones would we still get enchanted by it Therefore we can t say gold has greater appearance external object than stones10th is Customs Object this is relates to ethics and myths and law It s common for Indians to have sex in public but to Athenians it s shameful Which are correct We can t answer that thus we shouldn t try the answer it You can t use laws in arguments since I can use opposing laws of other people too Five Modes are Dispute opinions I think the weather is cool but an old man thinks it s cold Infinitum two proofs that rely on each other thus infinite regress Relativity Hypothetical you re building in something that is assumed and needs in itself to be proved and Reciprocal I believe we can apply these logical Five Modes into the Ten Modes above For example all first 4 ones are Relative As for 10th for example is Hypothetical Proofs can t exist When something is unclear and we need proof for it then we can t make sure this proof is really proof for the unclear thing unless the thing was clear for us to verify but if the thing was clear then the proof is not needed on the first place This example is from me if we are blind and we smell smoke we can t say this smell is the proof of fire unless we open our eyes and see it but then we can directly see the fire and it is clear for us so no proof is needed This theme of A proves B but what proves A is recurring throughout the book but here he is saying we don t need A if B is clearBut a big but since we are proving the you can t prove anything then you can t prove that you can t prove anything thus you might can prove something Thus we can t conclude whether we can prove something or not and we should suspend looking for the true answerIn other words we just proved that you can t prove anything contradiction On can we have teachers and students what makes one an expert in Math in order for him to teach it One is born ignorant on Math so he starts learning some Math theorems and after a while he is an expert So how did he become one Was their a certain theory he needs to learn to be called an expert If this is the case then can we call one who only knows this certain theory an expert You see the problem with Sextus is that he takes things as extremes either black or white and none of the colors in between as we say either 1 or 0 He is really concerned with the ultimate truth which humanity might never reach but that didn t stop us from getting closer to it by the day Same thing with being a Math expert it is not black or white it is not expert or non expert as he claims It s a bit expert in linear algebra expert than me in geometry and so on it s relative and not ultimate expert vs non expert Building Simple Model Steam Engines of Scepticism by the Greek philosopher Sextus Empiricus is a work The

Are you skeptical about things Is your instinct to disbelieve what others tell you however trustworthy it seems and however often I ve they ve been right in the past Well let me tell you that you ve got nothing nothing on the ancient Greek skepticsWe all know that the major figures of ancient philosophy are Plato Aristotle and a bunch of others Maybe also Cicero if you were educated prior to the 1950s The author of Outlines of Pyrrhonism Sextus Empiricus is one of those others and not a particularly significant other at that As even the publisher s intro to this book admits he is important for preserving these ideas already old in his own day than he is for any original thought or great philosophy himself With that said this book is still utterly fascinating if a bit long at timesThe overarching goal of Skepticism Pyrrhonism is ataraxia or peace within the soul translated variously in my edition as either tranuility or uietude This is the goal of many most philosophical systems both ancient and modern how can I understand myself God and the world and conseuently be at peace In pursuit of this uietude most of the Hellenistic philosophies turned to dogmatic declarations about their three primary categories of concern logic physics and ethics That is by making absolute claims about reason logic the material about which we reason physics and how our lives should be shaped by reason and reality accordingly ethics the dogmatic philosophies all promised peace within the soul if only one would endorse and live according to these doctrinesFull review available here
