    At the Cost of Solidarity – Or, Why Social Justice Needs Hermeneutics.Patrick J. Casey - 2021 - Analecta Hermeneutica 13:73-95.
    This essay addresses a stream of thought manifested in some forms of social justice activism – namely, that members of marginalized groups have privileged insight into the nature of social reality which others cannot understand, much less critique. This position, which I call “epistemic isolationism,” seems to rest on the claim that the knowledge that is embedded in lived experience is incommunicable.

    Plantinga and the Balkanization of Reason.Patrick J. Casey - 2020 - Philosophia Christi 22 (1):123-141.
    In this paper, I argue that Plantinga maintains it is possible to come to know that Christianity is true, but only from the inside. Further, since Plantinga argues that one’s judgments about the epistemic status of Christian belief depend upon one’s prephilosophical metaphysical views, his position amounts to the claim that the Christian community has privileged access to truth and that non-Christians are ill-equipped to evaluate their beliefs. The upshot of Plantinga’s position is, I suggest, that people from different communities (...)
