Friedrich Nietzsche and the Ancient Skeptical Tradition

I propose to bring together into a book my previous work on Friedrich Nietzsche's engagement with the Greek skeptics, expanding on published articles and papers presented over the last several years. This work fills a gap in the literature on Nietzsche by demonstrating how an understanding of ancient skepticism--the Pyrrhonian tradition in particular--promises to illuminate Nietzsche's own reflections on truth, knowledge, and ultimately, the nature and value of philosophic inquiry itself. Moreover, this work breaks new ground in the scholarship on one of the last century's most influential thinkers by presenting an interpretation of his thought that answers and connects together heretofore open questions about the coherence and lasting impact of his views.
