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.
