  1. Elizabeth Burns (forthcoming). Classical and Revisionary Theism on the Divine as Personal: A Rapprochement? International Journal for Philosophy of Religion:1-15.
    To claim that the divine is a person or personal is, according to Swinburne, ‘the most elementary claim of theism’ . I argue that, whether the classical theist’s concept of the divine as a person or personal is construed as an analogy or a metaphor, or a combination of the two, analysis necessitates qualification of that concept such that any differences between the classical theist’s concept of the divine as a person or personal and revisionary interpretations of that concept are (...)

  2. Elizabeth D. Burns (forthcoming). Pamela Sue Anderson: Re-Visioning Gender in Philosophy of Religion: Reason, Love and Epistemic Locatedness. International Journal for Philosophy of Religion:1-3.
    This book is both a revision and a re-visioning. Nine of the ten chapters are based on chapters or articles published elsewhere. Each is concerned with “re-visioning,” defined as looking back with fresh eyes at old ideas and texts and suggesting new areas of exploration.

It is, however, conducted in the continental style , (...)

  3. Elizabeth D. Burns (2013). 'Ontological' Arguments From Experience: Daniel A. Dombrowski, Iris Murdoch, and the Nature of Divine Reality. Religious Studies 49 (4):459-480.
    Dombrowski and Murdoch offer versions of the ontological argument which aim to avoid two types of objection – those concerned with the nature of the divine, and those concerned with the move from an abstract concept to a mind-independent reality. For both, the nature of the concept of God/Good entails its instantiation, and both supply a supporting argument from experience. It is only Murdoch who successfully negotiates the transition from an abstract concept to the instantiation of that concept, however, and (...)

    Iris Murdoch's concept of Good is a central feature of her moral theory; in Murdoch's thought, attention to the Good is the primary means of improving our moral conduct. Her view has been criticised on the grounds that the Good is irrelevant to life in this world (Don Cupitt), that the notion of a transcendent, single object of attention is incoherent (Stewart Sutherland), and that we can only understand what goodness is if we see it as an attribute of a (...)
