Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

As a starting point, a view that accords authority to some other faculty than reason. However that might cover empiricism, since use of the senses is not the same as the use of reason. In a more restricted sense, then, a view which releases the deliverance of some faculty, such as faith, or intuition, from the critical scrutiny of reason. A characteristic stance of fideism in theology, and Romanticism in the general culture.

Subjects: Philosophy.
