Street Epistemology: Challenging Religious Faith
What is Street Epistemology?
Epistemology is a branch of philosophy. It is concerned with the theory of knowledge (Wikipedia). The Street Epistemology (SE) method typically involves a 10-minute discussion. The discussion is between an SE practitioner (a Street Epistemologist) and someone who believes in God (or another supernatural belief). Initially, the religious person often gives several reasons for their belief in God. But the underlying reason usually comes down to ‘faith’. SE allows people to reflect on how they arrived at their deeply-held beliefs.
