Philosophy of Charles Hodge
|Author: ||Hicks, Peter|
This volume makes a positive contribution to issues that are central to the current debates on the topic of truth and the development of evangelicalism and its distinctive approach to epistemology. This material on Hodge is not covered elsewhere. In contrast to recent trends that stress the role of Scottish Common Sense philosophy in the development of Hodge's thought, this thesis suggests that theological concepts of the nature of God and of persons, and Hodge's consequent reaction to post-Kantian philosophy, were primary factors in the shaping of his epistemology.
"A noteworthy contribution to our understanding of an important and influential strand in American evangelicalism ... A skilful blend of historical scholarship and philosophical analysis." - Professor Paul Helm
