Rational fideism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rational fideism is the philosophical view that considers faith to be precursor for any reliable knowledge. Whether one considers rationalism or empiricism, either of them ultimately tends to belief in reason or experience respectively as the absolute basis for their methods. Thus, faith is basic to knowability. However, as Domenic Marbaniang shows,[1] faith must be corroborated with reason and experience in order to gain knowledge.
