The contributions in this volume make an important effort to resurrect a rather old fashioned form of foundationalism. They defend the position that there are some beliefs that are justified, and are not themselves justified by any further beliefs. This epistemic foundationalism has been the subject of rigorous attack by a wide range of theorists in recent years, leading to the impression that foundationalism is a thing of the past. DePaul argues that it is precisely the volume and virulence of the assaults which points directly to the strength and coherence of the position.

A country girl heads to the city in this novel from the author of Little Women: “Louisa May Alcott makes episodic and virtuous narratives engaging” (The Literary Omnivore). When fourteen-year-old Polly Milton visits her friend Fanny Shaw and Fanny’s wealthy family, she is soon overwhelmed by their fast-paced and fashionable urban life. Although she is teased for her country upbringing, Polly nevertheless endears herself to the Shaw family with her modest demeanor and kind heart. Six years later, Polly returns to the city as a music teacher. Though her friendship with Fanny has never waned, she is shocked to learn the Shaws are on the brink of financial ruin. With Polly’s unwavering support, the Shaw family will be guided to a more meaningful life. “People always like to read of kindly self-sacrifice, and sweetness, and purity, and naturalness; and this is what Polly is, and what her character teaches in a friendly and unobtrusive way to everybody about her. The story thus mirrors the reader’s good-will in her well-doing, and that is perhaps what, more than any other thing, makes it so charming and comfortable.” —The Atlantic
