This is an edition of one of the crucial texts of Renaissance skepticism, Quod nihil scitur, by the Portuguese scholar Franciso Sanches. The treatise, first published in 1581, is a refutation of Aaristotelian dialectics and scientific theory in the search for a true scientific method. This volume provides a critical edition of the original text, an English translation (the first ever published), a substantial introduction, and comprehensive annotation.

"D.F.S. Thomson, with his customary skill as a translator of Latin, catches the spirit and tone, and even renders the word play, of Sanches superbly. Elaine Limbrick, moreover, in her excellent introduction, places Sanches and his significance for the history of Renaissance and early modern philosophy in its proper perspective." 17th Century News
