Classic Fish

200px-Cornelius_Van_Tilstanley fishForget Van Til—the secret of his unreadability is out: he actually wrote in Dutch but used English letters! No wonder no one can understand the guy!

It’s time you got your presuppositionalism the easy and fun way: Stanley Fish. Read this, it’s astounding.

    Great article by Fish. The comment section was rather sad to read however. Many people are simply unwilling to give up absolute objectivity. But, I must note that I did stop reading the comments before Hitler came up, so I suppose I didn’t read enough.

    Thanks for sharing this. I think Fish should translate Van Til. @mitrellim — fun to find you here.

    The Fish article was worth reading just for the double take he forced me to do on that phrase “every reason to believe.” I’m embarrassed to be constantly confronted by ideas like this that, once I DO get them, I can’t imagine how I missed them.

    I would love to see you write something on that catchphrase “Every Reason to Believe.”
