    The Pragmatic Turn in the Study of Religion.G. Scott Davis - 2005 - Journal of Religious Ethics 33 (4):659-668.
    Jeffrey Stout's "Democracy and Tradition" puts forward a complex argument in favor of American democracy as a healthy and legitimate moral and political tradition in itself. Stout does not dwell on the place of his own work in the "pragmatic" approach to the study of religion in the last thirty years. This paper attempts to situate Stout's work in the approach to religion identified with Mary Douglas and Wayne Proudfoot and to suggest some of the consequences for comparative religious ethics (...)

    A Vindication of Theology: A Response to Alain Epp Weaver.G. Scott Davis - 2001 - Journal of Religious Ethics 29 (1):79 - 85.
    Alain Epp Weaver's analysis of the theological foundations of Augustine's proscription of all lies in all circumstances does more than improve our understanding of Augustine. In drawing a plausible and illuminating parallel between the theological logic of Augustine and the theological logic of John Howard Yoder, Weaver not only succeeds in defending the credibility of Christian pacifism but also provides support for interpreting Yoder as a biblical realist. Moreover, the divergence between Weaver and Christopher Kirwan in their critical assessments of (...)

    How to Write a Book: Religious Experience at Thirty.G. Scott Davis - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):10.
    Some years ago I mentioned to Wayne Proudfoot what a pleasure it was to teach Religious Experience, if only to show a group of students how to develop an argument over the course of an entire book. Proudfoot shook his head and remarked that one reviewer praised the book as a helpful collection of essays. In the remarks that follow, I want to argue three points: 1) that Religious Experience is a remarkably tight argument, from beginning to end; 2) that (...)

    The Just.G. Scott Davis - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (2):448-449.
    Paul Ricoeur writes of these essays that they “do not properly speaking constitute the chapters of a book.... Yet these texts do not come down simply to being occasional writings for some particular circumstance”. This is too modest. This short volume limns a comprehensive account of ethics, politics, and the law that “one might call neo-Aristotelian”. What makes Ricoeur’s position neo-Aristotelian is the insistence that “the question what ought I to do? is secondary in relation to the more elementary question (...)

    A Whig History of Ethics: A Review of "The Invention of Autonomy" by J. B. Schneewind. [REVIEW]G. Scott Davis - 2001 - Journal of Religious Ethics 29 (1):175 - 197.
    J. B. Schneewind's "The Invention of Autonomy" has been hailed as a major interpretation of modern moral thought. Schneewind's narrative, however, elides several serious interpretive issues, particularly in the transition from late medieval to early modern thought. This results in potentially distorted accounts of Thomas Aquinas, Hugo Grotius, and G. W. Leibniz. Since these thinkers play a crucial role in Schneewind's argument, uncertainty over their work calls into question at least some of Schneewind's larger agenda for the history of ethics.
