A Saint for Our Times: Newman on Faith, Fallibility, and Certitude

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
This essay shows how John Henry Newman reconciled the certitude of faith with a fallibilist epistemology. While Newman holds that many of our beliefs are held with certitude, he does not conceive of all certitude as Cartesian, apodictic certitude. In this way, he walks a middle road between rationalism and fideism.
