Exclusivism about Truth

Show Summary Details

Preview

Various interpretations of the idea of exclusivism about truth are considered, both in terms of their reasonableness as interpretations of exclusivism about truth and in terms of their overall plausibility. Proposals from David Basinger, Alvin Plantinga, Paul Griffiths, and Kevin Meeker and Philip Quinn, among others, are considered. The issues considered include whether an exclusivist about truth can consistently allow that she is wrong in some of her beliefs and whether it is useful to distinguish between closed and open exclusivism.
