This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
It's a good review. Is that a book Plantinga just did or an old one? I find most profs who retire kind of go to seed. I thought when I first read about Dangerous Idea, the book, "I wonder if this is where Plantinga got his argument on naturalism?" Part of it does seem to draw upon The Reppert argument. Dr. R do you know if that's the case?
Plantinga developed the argument on his own, but I pointed out to him the similarity between his argument and Lewis's when I was a junior fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Religion in 1989-1990, which he mentions in Warrant and Proper Function. In fact, for quite awhile, I questioned his argument because I thought it was a Skeptical Threat Argument, which I criticize in my original Lewis-Anscombe essay.
If you are interested in a comparison between Lewis and Plantinga, see my paper.
