I am interested in reading and translating Pyrrhonean skepticism. I am not so much interested in "Micky Mouse" philosophy---that is, philosophers talking to each other and being "rigorous" (I can easily see rigor's value in pure mathematics, not in philosophy)---but in how philosophy can help deal with real problems. The most interesting and pressing real problem in my opinion is decision making under the vast uncertainty of this world, in the contexts of primarily: entrepreneurship, more ancillary: scientific research, and distant tertiary: social and economic policies.

My immediate plans: translate a few chapters of Brochard, and read and translate Foucher's Dissertation sur la recherche de la vérité, contenant l'apologie des academiciens (1687) and the original, similarly titled book from 1673.
