It is not the task of this essay to offer a total refutation of the Skeptics’ claim, rather to analyze arguments which look at the justification for our beliefs. Two such arguments, which have traditionally been in contest with one another, are Foundationalism and Coherentism. The former claims that there are basic, self-evident beliefs which act as a foundation upon which all other beliefs are built. The latter asserts that all beliefs are justified if and only if they cohere with one another. There are obvious problems with these two modes of thinking, which will form the primary investigation of this essay. A possible solution, as offered by Haack, lies somewhere in the middle and is understandably termed “Foundherentism”. The heart of this essay will be in the exploration of Haack’s reasoning, but first, a look at the two competing theories from which it stems.
