Description

Ever since the Enlightenment, philosophers and even some theologians have claimed that Christian belief is at best intellectually third-rate. This series considers this claim and such questions as these: Have Kant and Hume (or Hick and Kaufmann) given any good reasons for thinking we cannot talk and think about God? How are faith and reason related? Does Christian belief have such epistemic virtues as justification, rationality, and warrant? Are any of the three kinds of defeaters (evil, pluralism, and post-modern 'unmaskings') that have been proposed for Christian belief successful? The purpose is to help the listener to understand these challenges and see that they can easily be met. Lectures include:
