This second volume in the series, published under the auspices of the den Dulk Christian Foundation (Ripon, CA), is a published edition of Van Til’s systematic and historical treatment of epistemology, previously entitled “Metaphysics of Apologetics.” This is the final version of what was originally his master’s thesis at Princeton Theological Seminary [“Reformed Epistemology” 1925.A]. It surveys Greek, medieval, and modern epistemologies, and sets forth the principles of a Reformed Christian epistemology along with its implications for apologetics.
