This, if right, produces a tension between Cicero’s skepticism, according to which deference to tradition impedes inquiry, and the view that Cicero seeks to legitimize the skeptical Academy in Rome. Importantnotions of modern skepticism such as knowledge, certainty, justifiedbelief, and doubt play no or almost no role. This predominance of interest in Pyrrhonism over Academic skepticism also manifests itself in the fact that, whereas in recent years several new translations of Sextus Empiricus’ writings (our principal source for Pyrrhonism) have appeared in the most important European languages, the same has not happened with Cicero’s Academica, which is our main source of information about the philosophy of the skeptical Academy.

One might also argue that Sextus is historically inaccurate in some of his reports, e.g., in his ascription of a negative dogmatism to Carneades and Clitomachus ( PH 1.3, 226). Finally, the objection that the adoption of skepticism leads to inactivity ( apraxia) was directed against both the Pyrrhonists (see AD 5.162-163) and the skeptical Academics (see Acad. One example is Brittain’s view that, in his Roman Books, Philo defended a form of fallibilism, and not the mitigated skepticism he had espoused after his abandonment of Clitomachus’ radical skepticism. ), but there is also a unifying feature.

This is at first glance problematic since, whereas Acad. In the Introduction, Brittain points out that he will use the term “impression” to render the Latin visum, visio, and quod videri,5 all of which Cicero utilizes to translate the Greek phantasia (see the chart on p. xli).6 He explains that the reason for rendering quod videri as “impression” is that one thus avoids “the mismatch in English between the noun ‘impression’ and the verb ‘seem'” (p. xli).

Worth mentioning is Brittain’s careful distinction, in the text of the Academica, between three layers of argument which correspond to different debates: the debate between Stoics and Academics in the third and second centuries BC, between the Academics themselves in the first century BC, and between the Roman interlocutors of the dialogues.
