Chisholm and coherence

Philosophical Studies 38 (1):53 - 63 (1980)
It is generally conceded that a principle of coherence is needed to give a complete account of justification. Even the most prominent foundationalists of this century have included coherence principles among those epistemic principles which they defend. Against this prevailing view, I suggest that a principle of coherence is not needed in order to give an adequate account of justification. However, Instead of arguing directly for this claim, I defend the only slightly less controversial claim that contrary to what foundationalists such as roderick chisholm think, Foundationalists theories of justification can be developed adequately without recourse to a principle of coherence
