Justification, Knowledge, and Reasonableness

Show Summary Details


This chapter distinguishes rationality from justification and connects both with reasonableness and knowledge. It also explores rationality and other normative notions in the aesthetic realm, which is, in some ways, a model for understanding them in relation to religious commitment. It concludes with a position on how these different epistemological notions—especially rationality, justification, and knowledge—apply to the appraisal of religious commitments.

Keywords: rationality; justification; reasonableness; knowledge; normative notions; aesthetic elements; religious commitment
