Episode 11 continues our two-part series on Reformed Epistemology, the view that belief in God can be rational even without arguments. We pick up right where we left off in the previous episode. If you’re just finding out about us, episode 11 won’t make a lot of sense–I encourage new listeners to skip back to episode 10. Dr. Andrew Moon, my guest, is professional philosopher that’s written extensively in this area.
Dr. Andrew Moon
Dr. Moon is currently an assistant professor of philosophy at Virginia Commonwealth University. Previously, he was a research fellow at University of Notre Dame and Rutgers University and a visiting professor at Dalhousie University and Kansas State University. He earned his PH.D. at the University of Missouri, and his committee was composed of Peter Markie (adviser), Matthew McGrath (2nd reader), John Greco, Andrew Melnyk, and Paul Weirich.
His areas of specialty are in epistemology and philosophy of mind, and he has interests in philosophy of religion, metaphysics, ethics, and logic. A sample research lecture is available here, and a sample introductory level lecture is available here. Both were delivered for the Young Philosopher’s Lecture Series.
I encourage you to check out his website here. There you can find a list of his publications, CV, and further information.
As mentioned above, Part 2 picks up right where we left off from Part 1. We cover a lot of ground, very quickly–the difficulty is actually more like advanced on this one. You may want to listen back to 10 first and 11 immediately after. Our discussion centers around 3 of the most common objections to Reformed Epistemology.
