    The Doctor of Philosophy Will See You Now.Christopher Coope - 2009 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 65:177-214.
    Papers about philosophy, as distinct from papers within it, are like homeopathic medicines – thin in content. We can only hope to provide some substance if we confine ourselves to some particular aspect. The aspect I have chosen to discuss is this. What hope should we have of finding from within this rather curious and academic subject of ours a help in the affairs of life? Could we expect a doctor of philosophy to give practical advice, rather like a medical (...)

    Was Mill a Utilitarian?Christopher Miles Coope - 1998 - Utilitas 10 (1):33.
    Mill was receptive to all sorts of ideas, both plausible and implausible, which did not fit well with utilitarianism. He was, for example, inclined to think of equality, not just pleasure, as. He was able to think of himself as a utilitarian only by grossly expanding that notion to cover any doctrine which did not entirely rely, without the possibility of further explanation, on or God's commands. It is even doubtful whether he was a consequentialist in any sense. Mill's account (...)

    The Bad News of the Gospel.Christopher Miles Coope - 2011 - Philosophy 86 (2):249-291.
    This article discusses Elizabeth Anscombe's faith and her concept of faith, and the bearing of this on what it is for belief to be reasonable. Reasonableness requires that we make a rough distinction between what can and cannot be taken seriously. At the margin we will rightly be influenced by thinkers such as Anscombe who were well able to appreciate the philosophical consensus but were also prepared to disturb it. She disturbed it in a particular way: by asserting Christian teachings (...)

    Wittgenstein's Theory of Knowledge: Christopher Coope.Christopher Coope - 1973 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 7:246-267.
    I shall start by considering the apparently paradoxical doctrines that Wittgenstein put forward about knowledge: they show how the concept of knowledge is, as he says, ‘specialized’. This is not, as I shall show, a very important issue in itself, but it leads on to other points, of more interest: how it comes about, for example, that ‘not all corrections of our beliefs are on the same level’. I shall then discuss the idea that we inherit a certain picture of (...)

    Dodgy Passport, Fruitless Journey. [REVIEW]Christopher Miles Coope - 2008 - Philosophy 83 (4):525-555.
    Since critical standards impose restraints, inappropriate standards can over-restrain. Might there then be claims we can only assess satisfactorily with the aid of a less restrictive and detached approach than is current among philosophers of the present day? This article takes up a particular suggestion, put forward by John Cottingham, that this is indeed the case -- that there are regions of thought, particularly in regard to religion, which we can only explore with the aid of emotional sensitivity and immersion (...)

    Good-Bye to the Problem of Evil, Hello to the Problem of Veracity.Christopher Miles Coope - 2001 - Religious Studies 37 (4):373-396.
    I start from Mill's words about Mansel and the problem of evil. In this dispute Mansel has generally been thought to have come off worst. However, Mansel was clearly right to this extent: that what would make a man a good man would not be the same as what made God good. This is because, quite generally, what makes something good of its kind, where we can talk about goodness at all, varies with the kind. With Aristotle we must say: (...)

    Sisterly Assistance and the Feminism of Anger.Christopher Coope - 1993 - Cogito 7 (1):58-62.
    One can in all innocence help people who are not victims of injustice. In this essay I argue that women can attempt to provide better opportunities for women in just this spirit, in the way that the members of a trade union will join to assist one another. The observance of this distinction will make it easier for us calmly to assess whether women are on the whole unjustly treated by comparison with men. The word “sexism” is a campaign word (...)
