  1. Life, Death, and the Hiddenness of God.Robert Oakes - 2008 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 64 (3):155 - 160.
    Many philosophers have contended that (traditional) theism or supernaturalism suffers from what can properly be called the Problem of Divine Hiddenness (the PDH ). [See Howard-Snyder and Moser 2002]. Moreover, it is the contention of many proponents of the PDH that this “problem,” if, indeed, not just a component of the “problem of evil,” bears a striking similarity to the latter. Specifically, at the heart of this ostensible difficulty for theism is that Divine “Hiddenness,” like pain and suffering—or at least (...)

    Strong Interiority and (Traditional) Theism: What's the Problem?Robert Oakes - 2012 - Ratio 25 (1):68-78.
    Central to Spinozism is the thesis that the immanence of the Divine Substance in the cosmos is – like the immanence of the dancer in the dance –maximal or total. Just as the dance consists entirely of the dancer in aesthetically‐stylized motion, so the domain of nature is nothing in addition to God in cosmic guise. Accordingly, natural objects constitute modes of God. Hence, Spinozism and theism are obviously irreconcilable. For it is indispensable to theism that the immanence of God (...)

    Religious Experience and Rational Certainty*: ROBERT A. OAKES.Robert A. Oakes - 1976 - Religious Studies 12 (3):311-318.
    The purpose of this paper is to clear up the long-standing veritable mountain of misinterpretation, perpetuated from critic to critic, concerning the admittedly problematic concept of self-authenticating religious experience. While it may well be the case, as many have argued, that a sort of ‘experience’ about which one could not be mistaken is simply a logically impossible state of affairs, this cannot be known to be the case so long as what is under attack is a bogus concept, obviously absurd, (...)

    Perishability, the Actual World, and the Existence of God.Robert Oakes - 1983 - Religious Studies 19 (4):493-504.
    In this paper I shall formulate and defend what I take to be a fresh argument for the rationality of theistic belief. Specifically, I propose to establish the reasonableness of believing the following proposition to be true: Every possible world that includes the existence of perishable objects includes the existence of God. Success in this endeavour would, of course, ensure the reasonableness of believing that the possible world which happens to be actual – including, as it does, the existence of (...)

    Classical Theism and Pantheism: A Victory for Process Theism?: ROBERT A. OAKES.Robert A. Oakes - 1977 - Religious Studies 13 (2):167-173.
    In Anselm's Discovery , Professor Hartshorne makes the rather startling and counterintuitive claim that ‘…there is indeed no issue between theism and pantheism. We all exist in the divine being, as St Paul said.’ 1 Classical or orthodox theists, it seems eminently fair to say, can be expected to recoil from any such suggestion with more than a little indignation. First of all, it might well be objected that Hartshorne - as a ‘process theist’ - is not a classical theist, (...)

    Classical Theism and Pantheism: A Victory for Process Theism?Robert A. Oakes - 1977 - Religious Studies 13 (2):167 - 173.
    In "anselm's discovery", professor hartshorne argues that there is 'no issue' between theism and pantheism. classical or orthodox theists, it seems eminently fair to say, can be expected to recoil from such a claim with more than a little indignation. what i attempt to establish, however, is that hartshorne is correct. in short, i argue that the doctrine of 'god's-constant-conservation-of-all-things' (clearly an essential or integral doctrine of classical theism) entails that the 'spatiotemporal' matrix has the property of being included within (...)

    The Divine Infinity.Robert Oakes - 1997 - The Monist 80 (2):251-265.
    While proponents of traditional theism obviously reject the “pantheistic” metaphysic that there is nothingwhich is ultimately distinct from God—i.e., that the Divine Substance exhausts the whole of Reality—it seems tome that the following question is yet properly to be addressed: given that the doctrine of God’s infinity or absolute unlimitedness is no less axiomatic or nonnegotiably foundational to traditional theism than it is to the pantheistic interpretation of reality, how can traditional theists justifiably deny that the Divine Substance exhausts the (...)

    The doctrine of Tzimzum (or divine “withdrawal”) occupies pride of place in the Jewish mystical tradition as a response to what is arguably the chief theological or metaphysical concern of that tradition: namely, how God’s Infinity or Absolute Unlimitedness does not preclude the existence of a distinct domain of finite being. Alternatively, how can it be that God, by virtue of His Maximal Plenteousness, does not exhaust the whole of Reality? I attempt to show that, while a plausible argument - (...)

    Classical Theism and Pantheism: A Reply to Professor Quinn: ROBERT A. OAKES.Robert A. Oakes - 1980 - Religious Studies 16 (3):353-356.
    I am grateful to Philip Quinn for his thorough and penetrating critique of my paper on classical theism and pantheism. He has given me much to think about, and it would be philosophically remiss of me not to acknowledge that – in the light of his remarks – the argument which I employed in defence of the thesis that classical theism implies a version of pantheism might well benefit from some amendment. However, the purpose of this brief counter-rejoinder is to (...)

    Essays on the Philosophy of George Berkeley.Robert Oakes - 1990 - Idealistic Studies 20 (3):264-266.
    This anthology deserves a big scholarly cheer from those philosophers—on the increase, I believe—who regard the Bishop of Cloyne as a theistic metaphysician and epistemologist of perception of the first importance. Also, these essays should prove beneficial to those benighted ‘educated laymen’ whose understanding of Immaterialism is exhausted by Samuel Johnson’s kicking of the stone.
