Against the Academicians (386)

Against the Academicians and The Teacher. Trans. Peter King. Indianapolis: Hackett Publishing Company, 1995.

Augustine’s attempt to critique the “academic” skepticism of Cicero’s late Roman disciples.

From the Publisher:

“These new translations of two treatises dealing with the possibility and nature of knowledge in the face of skeptical challenges are the first to be rendered from the Latin critical edition, the first to be made specifically with a philosophical audience in mind, and the first to be translated by a scholar with expertise in both modern epistemology and philosophy of language.”
