I say this as a friendly outsider to the Van Til school. My own epistemology is a marriage of both the Dutch tradition and the Scottish tradition. How many of us have read the men Van Til critiqued? I have in mind Butler, Paley, Hackett, Locke, and Kant? I know Van Til read these guys and that's partly why he was able to do great things. I am working through Locke right now and I plan to start Hackett soon.
