Summer Schools

 

Summer School at Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies

The Summer School will address major concepts, strategies and key terms of ancient sceptical traditions in Greek, Hebrew, and Latin literature. Participants will be introduced to the sceptical enquiry of concepts of truth and knowledge and to sceptical methods of doubting and arguing. The aim is to provide participants with tools and means by which they can examine scepticism in relation to the attainment of knowledge and truth – within each of the three traditions.

Course leader is Prof. Dr. Giuseppe Veltri. He will be supported by an international team of experts in scepticism from the fields of ancient philosophy and religious studies.
