Grim’s Guide to Pyrrhonism
Once again it is time to play the paradox and be as contradictory as the Mad Hatter. Though I strive to add ridiculous amounts of personality to these posts, we maintain a certain methodical nature in our Quest for Informational Enlightenment.
A friend recently Emailed me a link to a Wiki about Pyrrhonism. He described it as the ultimate form of skepticism. Pyrrhonism, or Pyrrhonian skepticism, was a school of skepticism founded by Aenesidemus in the first century BC. It was named after Pyrrho, a philosopher. The details are sketchy at best but we work with what we have.
Anyway, this is how it works. For the Pyrrhonists, it is our opinions or unwarranted judgments of things which turn them into desire, painful effort, and disappointment. It would seem that this form of skepticism allows one to attain some inner tranquility through indifference. Complete indifference is somewhat difficult to accomplish, as one must eventually get down from the fence to eat. However keeping in mind the principles of Pyrrhonian skepticism, new and amazing possibilities open up for our Quest for Informational Enlightenment
While I can see the benefits of this outlook I maintain my right to be judgmental and opinionated for the sake of entertainment alone:)
