L'auto-réfutation du Sceptique vue de la scène antique

Abstract : Although it can certainly be stated that some Skeptics refute themselves, this is not the case with Sextus Empiricus. By distinguishing between self-referential and performative models of self-refutation, which are contrasted with the ancient problems of the Liar and reversal (peritropè), it can be demonstrated that Sextus employs what he calls sumperigraphè, which might be considered as a topological verbal pattern (a recursive loop). This allows Sextus to contain the logic to which self-refutation is bound in a reflective and abyssal effect, uniting it with the great skeptical tradition of Greek tragedy.
