Clark, Gordon Haddon

Clark, Gordon Haddon
(1902-85)
   A pugnacious philosopher from the Calvinist tradition, Clark wrote over forty books and taught philosophy for sixty years. He is best known for his dispute with Cornelius van Til over whether there was any content in common between God's knowledge and human knowledge. Clark claimed that the content of some of God's knowledge was the same as that of human knowledge; van Til disagreed. Clark's philosophical system has received the name 'Scripturalism' because he insisted that everything we can know can be deduced from Scripture. Clark's influence on contemporary Christian philosophy is largely confined to conservative Calvinism in North America.
