Abstract

Abstract

There are two sorts of knowledge: intellectual knowledge (knowledge of true propositions) and experiential knowledge (knowledge of how certain experiences feel). Experiential knowledge cannot be reduced to intellectual knowledge. This has important consequences for the doctrine of divine omniscience: if God cannot undergo experiences and is intellectually omniscient only, there is some knowledge He does not possess. This is not a minor restriction on God’s omniscience, and makes a satisfactory solution of the problem of evil virtually impossible. Therefore it is argued that God must be able to undergo experiences and must be experientially as well as intellectually omniscient.
