Pyrrhon Of Elis, Pyrrhon also spelled Pyrrho, (born c. 360 BC-died c. 272), was a Greek philosopher from whom Pyrrhonism takes its name; he is generally accepted as the father of Skepticism. He concluded that man must suspend judgment (practice epochē) on the reliability of sense perceptions and simply live according to reality as it appears. Pyrrhonism profoundly influenced philosophical thought in 17th-century Europe with the republication of the skeptical works of Sextus Empiricus, who had codified Greek Skepticism about the turn of the 3rd century CE, and its force has resounded to our present day.
