(p.121) 6 And Not Antifoundationalism Either
Toward a Generous Orthodoxy

Jason A. Springs (Contributor Webpage)


Frei's appeals to the "givenness" of revelation-the claim, for instance, that all doctrines or theological assertions are directly or indirectly grounded in faith, or that faith is rational in that it seeks understanding within a set of reasons afforded by God's revelatory activity in Scripture-incur charges of "revelational foundationalism." Chapter 6 employs recent treatments of epistemic foundationalism in order to dispel charges of "crypto-foundationalism" as well as answering the equally frequent charge that talk of "rationality intrinsic to faith" implicates Frei's thought in a type of fideism.

Keywords:   Anselmian coherentism, epistemic foundationalism, fideism, reformed epistemology, Alvin Plantinga, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Wilfrid Sellars, Robert Brandom, inferentialism
