5 Myths about Human Reasoning

Below is a list of five myths about human reasoning. Go to the full article on The Works of John Frame and Vern Poythress site to discover the arguments presented by Dr. Poythress.

Myth #1: Human reasoning operates in essential independence of God.

Myth # 2: The laws of logic are common to everyone, whatever his religion.

Myth #3: The laws of logic are the same, whether or not God exists.

Myth # 4: The most rigorous forms of reasoning are those that eliminate all analogies and use purely literal language.

Myth #5: What someone knows intuitively should be allowed to overrule what is reasoned out.

VERN POYTHRESS serves as Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Biblical Interpretation, and Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. He was previously editor of the Westminster Theological Journal. His wide-ranging interests allow him to write with theological depth in areas as divergent as linguistics, mathematics, science, and sociology. Poythress joined the Westminster faculty in 1976 and has also served as an instructor at the Summer Institute of Linguistics.
