Plantinga and Wittgenstein on Properly Basic Beliefs

Philo 3 (1):32-40 (2000)
Abstract
Alvin Plantinga argues that secular evidentialism is false because the criteria of properly basic beliefs are either too restrictive or incoherent. I argue that Wittgenstein provides a better position on basic propositions (e.g. in On Certainty), which amounts to a more psychologically plausible vision of our epistemic foundations.
