The central coherentist critique of foundationalism brings forward a requirement of meta-justification for putative basic beliefs, which means that the beliefs are not basic after all. The foundationalist response denies this requirement, because it is in conflict with the doctrine of supervenience. Recently, one of the principal members of the coherentist camp, Keith Lehrer (1997, 60-77), suggested coherentists should reject this doctrine in order to maintain their advantage over foundationalist theories of justification.
