Timon of Phlius
Timon of Phlius (flĪˈəs) [key], c.320–c.230 B.C., Greek skeptic philosopher, chief disciple of Pyrrho. Timon denied the possibility of certain knowledge and, like his master, taught that the philosopher can achieve peace of mind only by suspension of judgment and indifference to externals. After Timon's death the skeptics lost their separate identity and became absorbed into the Academy. Only fragments of his work have survived.
