The listed prompt: “Trace how Montaigne makes use of skepticism in his assaying of the relevant subjects.” One of the sources should be the Apology for Raymond Sebond, as this is considered Montaigne’s most skeptical work. The other source can be whichever one of his other works, but Of Physiognomy may be a good one to utilize as we have talked about this one in class.  As well as Of Virtue and Of Cannibals. -Of Physiognomy: (starts on page 71) https://oll-resources.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/oll3/store/titles/1750/Montaigne_0963-09_EBk_v6.0.pdf -Another source for Of Physiognomy: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3600/3600-h/3600-h.htm#link2HCH0105 -Apology for Raymond Sebond:  https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3600/3600-h/3600-h.htm#chap12 The posted Gutenburg link has access to all of his works and each of his books if that is most convenient to utilize.
