  1. Praying to Stop Being an Atheist.T. J. Mawson - 2010 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 67 (3):173 - 186.
    In this paper, I argue that atheists who think that the issue of God's existence or non-existence is an important one; assign a greater than negligible probability to God's existence; and are not in possession of a plausible argument for scepticism about the truth-directedness of uttering such prayers in their own cases, are under a prima facie epistemic obligation to pray to God that He stop them being atheists.

  • I and Thou: The Educational Lessons of Martin Buber's Dialogue with the Conflicts of His Times.W. J. Morgan & Alexandre Guilherme - 2012 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 44 (9):979-996.
    Most of what has been written about Buber and education tend to be studies of two kinds: theoretical studies of his philosophical views on education, and specific case studies that aim at putting theory into practice. The perspective taken has always been to hold a dialogue with Buber's works in order to identify and analyse critically Buber's views and, in some cases, to put them into practice; that is, commentators dialogue with the text. In this article our aims are of (...)

  • God as Thou and Prayer as Dialogue: Martin Buber’s Tools for Reconciliation. [REVIEW]Alexandre Guilherme - 2012 - Sophia 51 (3):365-378.
    ‘Prayer’ can be defined as ‘the offering, in public worship or private devotion, of petition, confession, adoration, or thanksgiving to God; also the form of words in which such an offering is made’ (cf. Cohn-Sherbok 2010). In addition to this simple definition it could be said that there are different forms of prayer: some are vocal and articulate and others are only mental in nature; some prayers are communal and liturgical and other prayers are spontaneous or at least composed by (...)

  • Is There a Distinctively Feminist Philosophy of Religion?Elizabeth D. Burns - 2012 - Philosophy Compass 7 (6):422-435.
    Feminist philosophers of religion such as Grace Jantzen and Pamela Sue Anderson have endeavoured, firstly, to identify masculine bias in the concepts of God found in the scriptures of the world’s religions and in the philosophical writings in which religious beliefs are assessed and proposed and, secondly, to transform the philosophy of religion, and thereby the lives of women, by recommending new or expanded epistemologies and using these to revision a concept of the divine which will inspire both women and (...)

  • D. Z. Phillips on Christian Immortality.Patrick Horn - 2012 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 71 (1):39-53.
    D. Z. Phillips is widely assumed to have held that Christian immortality has no reality outside of language. The author challenges that assumption, demonstrating that Phillips wished to show that contemporary analytic philosophy distorts the reality that immortality has for believers. While most philosophical accounts of Christian immortality depend upon terms that have little religious significance, Phillips offered accounts that stress the centrality of that significance. The author gives an account of the sort of philosophical attention that Phillips gave to (...)
