  1. Open-mindedness, Critical Thinking, and Indoctrination: Homage to William Hare.Harvey Siegel - 2009 - Paideusis: Journal of the Canadian Philosophy of Education Society 18 (1):26-34.
    William Hare has made fundamental contributions to philosophy of education. Among the most important of these contributions is his hugely important work on open-mindedness.

    In this paper, I aim to bring out the implausibility of the claim that there is a class of philosophers of religion—holders of a particular constellation of beliefs about religion—whose religious beliefs are either uniquely rational or uniquely supported by a stock of cogent arguments. My initial focus will be on models of parties to religious disagreements. These models may be simple, but I believe that there is much to be learned from them.
