Description - Faith After Foundationalism by D. Phillips

In a brilliant series of essays, the distinguished philosopher D. Z. Phillips explores the alternatives for faith after foundationalism. A significant exploration of post-foundationalist thought in its own right, Faith After Foundationalism is also an important evaluation and critique of the theological implications of the views of Alvin Plantinga, Richard Rorty, George Lindbeck, and Peter Berger. Phillipss own position is that one must resist the philosophers tendency to turn religious mystery into epistemological mystery. To understand how religious concepts are formed is to understand that to speak of God as beyond mortal telling is not to confess a failure of language. Gods hiddenness is part of our concept of hima reflection of the mystery of human life as it is lived. Faith After Foundationalism will be essential reading for philosophers of religion and theologians, as well as for students of contemporary epistemology.
