I am trying to install python 3.6.5_1 using Homebrew by running the following:

$ brew install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/f2a764ef944b1080be64bd88dca9a1d80130c558/Formula/python.rb

I am getting the following error:

Error: python contains a recursive dependency on itself: python depends on sphinx-doc sphinx-doc depends on python

How do I deal with it?

You can use --ignore-dependencies:

brew install --ignore-dependencies https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/f2a764ef944b1080be64bd88dca9a1d80130c558/Formula/python.rb
