Logan Gage on John Henry Newman, Fallibilism, and Certainty
In this episode, we talk to Logan Gage about his recent article, "A Saint for Our Times: Newman on Faith, Fallibility, and Certitude" (Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture 23 (2): 60-76 (2020)). We talk to Gage about Newman's view of that we can have knowledge without certitude and how that relates to skepticism, faith, and Catholic views of the certainty of faith. We discuss how this works in ordinary life, its philosophical importance, and the life of faith. Gage then explains how he things different kinds of arguments and evidence relate to belief and faith.
