‘Tis a Pity Geivett is so Ignorant

Epistemology – most English-users have never seen this word before, or heard it pronounced. ‘Tis a pity. Weighing in a twelve letters and six syllables, its heft suggests that something large is at stake.”

The above paragraph characterizes the rigorous philosophy R. Douglas Geivett does in his weak defense of foundationalism, “Is God a Story? Postmodernity and the Task of Theology” in Christianity and the Postmodern Turn. You know you’ve found a winner when he’s counting letters instead of examining the real issues.

Books I Still Need for My Senior Thesis

::wah wah warning::

Partly to help me keep track, partly for the curious – books I really ought to buy and read for my senior thesis:

  • After Christianity by Gianni Vattimo
  • Richard Rorty ed. by Charles Guignon and David R. Hiley
  • Articulating Reasons: An Introduction to Inferentialism by Robert Brandom
  • Truth, Language, and History: Philosophical Essays by Donald Davidson
  • Religion by Jacques Derrida and Gianni Vattimo
  • Faith After Foundationalism by D.Z. Phillips with Plantinga, Rorty, Lindbeck, and Berger
  • Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein
  • The Myth of Certainty by Daniel Taylor
  • Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories by Daniel Taylor
  • Christianity and the Postmodern Turn: Six Views ed. by Myron B. Penner
    I started to list all the Christianity-and-postmodernism books I want to read but the list was getting too long. Penner’s was recommended to me and I already mentioned the Reclaiming the Center book. Which reminds me that I really should read more by Stanley Grenz.
