This essay responds to Hugo Meynell’s objections to the purported fideism and anti-foundationalism of Herman Dooyeweerd’s philosophy. First the essay explains the context and structure of Dooyeweerd’s “transcendental critique of theoretical thought,” his attempt to uncover the “religious root” of philosophy and of other disciplines. Next I show why Meynell’s criticisms are off base, even though they point toward important problems in Dooyeweerd’s logic and in his notion of religion. Then I explain these problems and suggest ways to address them.
