Review of Metaphysics 46 (2):394-396 (1992)

Pyrrho of Elis followed Alexander into the Indus Valley where he contracted the skepticism which has ever since goaded Western thought. In this masterful study of the limits of human knowledge, D. P. Chattopadhyaya, one of India's brightest philosophical lights, revitalizes the westward flow of skepticism by putting our major epistemologies and philosophies of science to the test of his "anthropological rationalism". Often echoing Western pragmatists as well as Indians like Nägärjuna and Samkara, he sustains fallibilism, "localized holism", truth as phenomenological disclosure, and moderate realism.
