A Review of Warranted Christian Belief by Alvin Plantinga

James N. Anderson

Note: This essay was originally presented to a reading group of postgraduate systematic theology students at New College, University of Edinburgh. It is pitched at an introductory level, specifically for readers who have may some familiarity with Plantinga’s work but not with his recent writings in epistemology, and does not pretend to any originality (except, perhaps, for the closing comments on theological paradox).

“I do think the Roman Catholic religion is a disease of the mind which has a particular epidemiology similar to that of a virus.” The sentiments of Richard Dawkins, here expressed in an interview by Skeptic magazine, [1] may seem a mite strong for many non-believers; but even so, a widespread contention persists that there is something mentally out-of-sorts, or epistemically sub-par, or simply irrational about belief in God (particularly when that deity is conceived in ways historically associated with the Judeo-Christian tradition). Does this charge have some weight? Moreover, what exactly is the charge here? Just what are the noetic qualities or virtues that religious believers are said to lack?

It is to answering such pressing questions that Alvin Plantinga sets his hand in Warranted Christian Belief , Pierre Hardy Woman Leather Ankle Bpots Size 38 Sale Genuine BTuxGM
the third volume in his critically acclaimed Warrant trilogy and widely regarded as one of the most important contributions to the philosophy of religion in recent years. In this work Plantinga not only sets forth a detailed exposition of the epistemology of religious belief (specifically, Christian theistic belief), but also takes on (and arguably decimates) some of the most serious contemporary objections to the rationality of such belief. The thesis of the book has wide-ranging implications for work in natural theology and Christian apologetics. It deserves to become a classic.

Having made clear my enthusiasm for WCB from the outset, I will begin by explaining some of the background to the book and the author’s purposes in writing it, before moving on to review its structure and main arguments. I will conclude by commenting on Plantinga’s success in achieving his purposes, as well as mentioning what I consider to be some productive avenues of further research based on his thesis.

WCB represents the culmination and maturation of Plantinga’s thinking on epistemology over the course of his academic career. In God and Other Minds , [3] Plantinga examined the traditional arguments both for and against God’s existence, concluding that all fall well below the standard of compelling proof. Intriguingly, however, he proceeded to argue that the rational respectability of theistic belief need not be thought any the worse in the face of such a verdict. In fact, belief in God appears to be on a par (epistemically speaking) with belief in other minds . While there are no successful arguments for the latter (Plantinga purports to show), it is nonetheless considered a rational belief to hold (given that there are no successful arguments against it); this being so, we should not think that belief in God suffers under any lesser epistemic credentials simply for lacking successful arguments in its favour.

EL PASO, Texas - Some Chapin High School students tell ABC-7 they are concerned over a new policy that has limited their restroom time during class time.

Under the new policy, a student will only be able to go to the restroom, during each class period, three times over a nine week period.

For example, a student will only get to go to the restroom three times during history class during the nine week period, three times during math class during the same nine week period, etc.

The students said they were told about the new policy after returning from winter break last Thursday.

"This is really more on instances where this is being abused," El Paso Independent School District Spokeswoman Melissa Martinez said. "And students that are just wasting time. We really want to make sure we preserve that instructional time so that students are in class as much as possible."

But some students told ABC-7 they shouldn't be punished for the mistakes of others.

"I've been a good student. I go to the restroom when I need to go to the restroom," Ruby Medina, a student at Chapin, said. "Not because I need to hang out with friends or anything like that."

"I think it's kind of ridiculous," student Nia Goode said. "I feel like threeweeks is a little too far."

Martinez said even if a student uses all of their "restroom passes", a teacher can make the proper judgment on whether or not to allow the student to go.

"A teacher knows without having to have a student spell it out, if a student truly isn't feeling well," Martinez said. "Or really needs to be excused again. They're going to use their common sense and allow that student to be excused."

Martinez said this is not a district policy, but rather a policy implemented by the principal and staff specifically at Chapin High School. Martinez said parents have been notified and a meeting for students will be held Friday.

Students at Chapin typically take 4 classes a day and have a 5 minute break during passing periods along with a lunch break.
