Alvin Plantinga (1932–) is an American analytic philosopher working primarily in epistemology and philosophy of religion. He is the John A. O'Brien Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. He advances a religious and specifically Christian epistemological view called reformed epistemology, argues against naturalism using an evolutionary argument, and also puts forward a free will defense to the problem of evil.
