  1. Arif Ahmed (2013). From Game Theoretical Accounts of Cooperation to Meta-Ethical Choices. Studies in Christian Ethics 26 (2):176-183.
    This paper argues briefly that game theory in general, and evolutionary game theory in particular, are (1) ethically neutral (2) theologically irrelevant. By ‘game theory’ I mean the abstract mathematical theory of interacting agents that are ‘rational’ in the sense of the von Neumann-Morgenstern axioms. By ‘evolutionary game theory’ I mean the attempt to explain observed features of actual populations on an interpretation of game theory that equates utility with evolutionary fitness.

  4. Nicholas Unwin (2008). Divine Hoorays: Some Parallels Between Expressivism and Religious Ethics. Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 77 (3):659-684.
    Divine law theories of metaethics claim that moral rightness is grounded in God’s commands, wishes and so forth. Expressivist theories, by contrast, claim that to call something morally right is to express our own attitudes, not to report on God’s. Ostensibly, such views are incompatible. However, we shall argue that a rapprochement is possible and beneficial to both sides. Expressivists need to explain the difference between reporting and expressing an attitude, and to address the Frege-Geach problem. Divine law theorists need (...)
