Skepticism and death in Michel de Montaigne: the problem of the immortality of the soul in Raymond Sebond's apology

  • Tiago Barros Duarte
Keywords: Skepticism. Death. Immortality of the soul.

Abstract

This paper aims to reflect about the relation between two of the major themes of Montaigne’s thought, skepticism and death. For this, we will evaluate his view on the problem of the immortality of the soul in the Apology for Raymond Sebond, text where the philosopher deals more carefully with the problem of the skepticism and its relation with religion.
