Does Externalist Epistemology Rationalize Religious Commitment?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter challenges efforts by Alston and Plantinga to vindicate the justification of religious belief on the basis of externalist epistemic theories. It argues that pervasive religious disagreement amounting to systematic disagreement calls into question both the existence of reliable routes to religious knowledge and the possibility of one’s being entitled to think one is using such a route.
