Abstract:
John Henry Newman is widely acknowledged to be an important theologian. Despite this, Newman commentators consider that his work has received little recognition by philosophers. This thesis questions whether or not Newman's supposed philosophical isolation constitutes a misconception in Newman historiography. First of all it does this by examining Newman's general philosophical reception over the last two centuries; surveying a wide range of philosophical positions and philosophers from the many different branches of this discipline. The thesis then focuses upon whether or not he has made a contribution to one specific philosophical position, seldom given attention within Newman scholarship: the particularist approach to epistemology. In its investigations into this and the other more general dimension of Newman's philosophical reception the dissertation seeks to offer an historical re-evaluation of Newman's philosophical legacy.
