Phil Johnson on postmoderism


Epistemological Humility?

by Phil Johnson

Postmodern wisdom suggests that humility would actually keep us all from ever knowing with any degree of certainty or declaring with any kind of authority that anything is true.

In fact, as far as truly enlightened postmodernists are concerned, that sort of “humility” is the supreme and cardinal virtue. That’s why, according to any postmodern way of thinking, dogmatism is inherently arrogant, diversity is always honorable, and propositional truth-claims don’t ultimately matter much.

That’s not “humility”; it’s unbelief.
