Merge radical skepticism here[edit]

The article to be merged here seems to be about the same subject, to wit: "the philosophical position that knowledge is impossible." --TS 18:10, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

I've withdrawn this proposal. Pyrrhonism was a completely agnostic position, disavowing as dogmatic even the statement that all knowledge was impossible. --TS 12:02, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Both are wrong Tony. A much much much much much better way of looking at what Pyrrhonism/New Academy is and was would be to see it as the use of Epoche from a position of Wu wei. LoveMonkey (talk) 13:12, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Modern Pyrrhonism[edit]

Considering the recent upsurge in Pyrrhonism along with scientific scepticism, it would be a good idea to discuss it here. 150.203.110.137 (talk) 15:40, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

fallibilism[edit]

pyrrhonian skepticism is a much more radical view than fallibilism. the former says that we might be wrong; the latter that there would be no way of knowing if we were. obviously the skeptical claim is logically stronger.

also, what's with the citation to the 'journal of management research?' surely, better sources could be found ... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.32.173.159 (talk) 07:16, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
