|Title:||Natural reason : A Study of the Notions of Inference, Assent, Intuition, and First Principles in the Philosophy of John Henry Cardinal Newman||Authors:||Casey, Gerard||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5560||Date:||1984||Abstract:||Natural Reason is an examination of the religious epistemology of John Henry Cardinal Newman. Although his epistemology was developed primarily to defend the rationality of religious belief, it is, nevertheless, pertinent to problems of belief in general. The theme of the work is that Newman’s central epistemological notions conceal crucial ambiguities. These are the result of his inheriting an inadequate philosophical tradition whose limitations make it exceedingly difficult for him to give systematic expression to this thought. The clarification of these ambiguities will allow Newman’s thought to reveal itself in all its brilliance.||Type of material:||Book||Publisher:||Peter Lang||Keywords:||John Henry Cardinal Newman;Philosophy||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
