Mormon Postmodernism

One of the oddest creatures is the Mormon post-modernist, the staunch defender of the most large scale narrative in Western history attacking the sceptics with the tools of anti-large scale narrative and epistemic investigations.

Alan Goff may be the most famous one: After writing his thesis at BYU on this issue, he continued to publish articles on this issue, up until the present. A favorite target of his is Dan Vogel and his interpretations of the way the Book of Mormon came about.

  • 2005 review of Dan Vogel's Making of a Prophet
  • 2014 article on The Inevitability of Epistemology in Historiography (which attacks Dan Vogel again, for many pages, and needs trimming)
