This is the third edition of a classic book first published in 1960, which has sold thousands of copies in two paperback edition and has been translated into several foreign languages. Popkin's work has generated innumerable citations, and remains a valuable stimulus to current historical research. In this updated version, he has revised and expanded throughout, and has added three new chapters, one on Savonarola, one on Henry More and Ralph Cudworth, and one on Pascal. This authoritative treatment of the theme of scepticism and its historical impact will appeal to scholars and students of early modern history now as much as ever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the aspects that makes Popkin's book (and his work in general) of special value is its taking into consideration major and minor thinkers whose views are not well-known ... Popkin's work has shown that scepticism was at least one of the crucial forces in modern thought * Diego E. Machuca, Phil. Jahrbuch *
The present volume will take its place as a masterpiece that will continue to provoke controversy and further research in the foreseeable future. * Journal of the History of Philosophy *
Popkin taught us to look for the big picture, sweeping across the centuries. This book raises the bar again. * Journal of the History of Philosophy *
As in the previous editions, there is much to think about in this new edition in terms of provocations for further research. * Journal of the History of Philosophy *
