Thomas K. Carr examines the religious epistemology of John Henry Newman alongside the philosophical hermeneutics of Hans-Georg Gadamer. The two writers are found to cover a surprising amount of common ground: They make similar claims, and they fall into similar errors. A critical examination of four of Newman's leading ideas--first principles, antecedent probability, doctrinal development, and the illative sense--are compared with such Gadamerian themes as self-understanding, Bildung, projection, tradition, and the fusion of horizons. Carr concludes with a constructive proposal that applies a Newman-Gadamer synthesis to questions about knowledge of God.CONTENTSPreview: In Search of a Bridge Introducing Gadamer: Reconstructing the Question of Aesthetics Judgments of Taste Bildung and Self-Understanding Introducing Gadamer: Reconstructing the Question of Hermeneutics Seeing, Projecting and Fusing Artistic Mimesis Introducing Gadamer: Gadamer and the Question of Relativism Art, Play and Truth Prejudice and Tradition Part One: Newman's Philosophical Background Aristotle Joseph Butler Alexandrian Platonism Locke and British Empiricism Newman and the Germans Part Two: Toward a Newman-Gadamer Correspondence First Principles Antecedent Probabilities Theory of Development The Illative Sense Part Three: Newman and the Problem of Authority Authority Defined Authority, Art and Tradition Re-defined Part Four: Toward an Aesthetics of Religious Knowing Symbolic Knowing Imaginative Knowing Experiential Knowing
