Karl Rahner: Theology and Philosophy

By Karen Kilby | Go to book overview

Notes

1 Introduction
1
The exception is in the more technical end of analytic philosophy, where some philosophers do continue to take up and defend a foundationalist position.
2
For more detailed philosophical presentations of foundationalism, and the distinctions to be made among different types of foundationalism, cf. William Alston, “Two types of foundationalism” in The Journal of Philosophy, 1976, vol. 73, 165-88; Ernest Sosa, “The foundations of foundationalism” in Nôus, 1980, vol. 14, 547-64, and many contemporary textbooks on epistemology. For discussions of foundationalism and theology, see, among others, John E. Thiel, Nonfoundationalism, Minneapolis, MN: Fortress, 1994; William C. Placher, Unapologetic Theology: A Christian Voice in a Pluralist Conversation, Louisville, KY: Westminster/John Knox Press, 1989; Francis Schüssler Fiorenza, Foundational Theology: Jesus and the Church, New York: Crossroad, 1984.
3
Cf. Thiel, op. cit., p. 4, for an analysis of the way in which modern philosophy, beginning with Descartes, differs from premodern philosophy as regards foundations. There is no consensus here, however: Alvin Plantinga, in “Reason and belief in God, ” presents some premodern thinkers, including especially Thomas Aquinas, as “classical foundationalists” in Plantinga and Wolterstorff, eds, Faith and Rationality, Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press, 1984.
4
Placher, op. cit., p. 26.
5
Cf. Nicholas Everitt and Alec Fisher, Modern Epistemology, New York: McGraw Hill, 1995, chapter 6.
6
Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1997 (originally published in 1956 in Minnesota Studies in the Philosophy of Science). Wittgenstein's private language argument is another classic attack on pre-conceptual experience-or that is how it is often taken, though it is rife with interpretive difficulties.
7
Or in another version, sense data, facts about the sense impressions we have rather than facts about the world.

Wilfred Sellars, Empiricism and the Philosophy of Mind, Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1987, 43.

Ibid., p. 44
10
In order to have the concept of green it is necessary to have “a whole battery of concepts of which it is one element” (ibid., p. 44).
