I’m pleased to announce that Dr. Tyler Wunder has joined The Secular Outpost! Here is a short bio he provided to me for this announcement:
I received my PhD in Philosophy from Boston University; my dissertation was a critique of Alvin Plantinga’s Warrant trilogy. My publications are: “Anti-Naturalism and Proper Function” [Religious Studies 44(2)], “Critical Study of James K. Beilby’s Epistemology as Theology: An Evaluation of Alvin Plantinga’s Religious Epistemology” [Philo 10(2)], and “Critical Study of Alvin Plantinga’s Warranted Christian Belief” [Philo 5(2)]. I have also given an interview for the podcast Conversations from the Pale Blue Dot, titled “Why Plantinga’s Reformed Epistemology Fails” (episode 72—October 2010).
Presently I am working on an article related to Plantinga’s latest book, Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion, and Naturalism, as well as a book, loosely based on my dissertation, which defends the Great Pumpkin Objection against Reformed epistemology. I teach philosophy, including the philosophy of religion and formal logic, at a university in Ontario, Canada, and live with my wife, Sylvia Bryce-Wunder, and our rabbit Sweety.
Dr. Wunder has also written two pieces for The Secular Web: “An Inquiry into Davis’ Account of the Possibiliy of Rational Belief and Rational Scepticism in the Resurrection of Jesus” (1998) and “Review of Warranted Christian Belief” (2002).
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Wunder!
