Faith and Knowledge

  • Basil Mitchell
Part of the Philosophy of Religion Series book series


The position we have now arrived at is that, in its intellectual aspect, traditional Christian theism may be regarded as a world-view or metaphysical system which is in competition with other such systems and must be judged by its capacity to make sense of all the available evidence. It has been argued that it is an error to hold that such expressions as ‘make sense of’ can only be understood in terms of particular systems, for this is to presuppose what I have been contesting, that reasoning is always to be construed as the following of rules, whose character may to some extent vary from one system to another.
