  1. David Little (2015). Rethinking the Comparative Study of Religious Ethics. Journal of Religious Ethics 43 (3):525-542.
    This essay describes the author's change of approach to the comparative study of religious ethics from the one contained in a book on the subject, published in 1978. The change resulted from interactions with Abdulaziz Sachedina, the noted scholar of Islam, demonstrating the importance of comparing different ethical systems in reference to global topics like human rights, particularly the right to freedom of conscience.

  5. David Little (2006). On Behalf of Rights: A Critique of "Democracy and Tradition". [REVIEW] Journal of Religious Ethics 34 (2):287 - 310.
    Though responses to Stout's book, "Democracy and Tradition," have touched on his discussion of rights, none has comprehensively examined his position on the subject. Having endorsed several objections Stout raises against some influential views on democracy and rights, this article proceeds to criticize Stout's description and theoretical account of the natural and human rights traditions. The central argument is that Stout cannot successfully both affirm the traditions and adhere to his account.

  8. David Little (1993). The Recovery of Liberalism: Moral Man and Immoral Society Sixty Years Later. Ethics and International Affairs 7 (1):171–201.
    In this analysis of Reinhold Niebuhr's 1932 classic Moral Man, Little reviews some of the book's fundamental conclusions. He observes that, when moral language is used in international politics without self-criticism, it diverts attention from the real motives of the statesmen who use it.
