Postmodernism and Pluralism

What is truth?

Pontius Pilate

To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false; while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.


You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.


I was planning to title this chapter “Postmodernism and Pluralism”; in fact that is what I did title the chapter. But the title may be a misnomer. Our project, in this fourth and last part of the book, is to evaluate various possible defeaters for Christian belief. The problem with postmodernism, though, is that it is extremely hard to find in it anything that is a sensible candidate for being a defeater for Christian belief. Religious pluralism, perhaps, can be thought with some show of reason to be such a defeater; it’s much harder to find a likely candidate in postmodernism. Permit me to explain.
