    A Response to the Argument From the Reasonableness of Nonbelief.Robert T. Lehe - 2004 - Faith and Philosophy 21 (2):159-174.
    According to J. L. Schellenberg’s argument from the reasonableness of nonbelief, the fact that many people inculpably fail to find sufficient evidence for the existence of God constitutes evidence for atheism. Schellenberg argues that since a loving God would not withhold the benefits of belief, the lack of evidence for God’s existence is incompatible with divine love. I argue that Schellenberg has not successfully defended his argument’s two controversial premises, that God’s love is incompatible with his allowing some to remain (...)

    Masao Abe and the Problem of Evil in Buddhism and Christianity.Robert T. Lehe - 2019 - Buddhist-Christian Studies 39 (1):217-226.
    THE PROBLEM OF EVIL IN CHRISTIANITY AND BUDDHISM ABSTRACT In his prolegomena to “the problem of evil in Christianity and Buddhism” Masao Abe compares how Christianity and Buddhism explain the conflict between good and evil, the absolute ethical imperative to do good and avoid evil, and the problem that human beings inevitably fail to comply with that imperative. Abe argues that Buddhism and Christianity agree on the absoluteness of the imperative, but that Buddhism’s notions of the relativity and interdependence of (...)

    Coherence and the Problem of the Criterion.Robert T. Lehe - 1989 - Idealistic Studies 19 (2):112-120.
    Socrates did not claim to know many things, but one of the things that he insisted he did know with certainty was that there is a genuine distinction between knowledge and true opinion. Socrates maintained that unless this distinction held, inquiry would be pointless. Such a claim would seem to pre-suppose knowledge of what it means to know, an ability to specify the ground of the distinction between knowledge and true opinion. However, the attempt to bring the manifold forms of (...)

    A Critique of Peter Byrne's Religious Pluralism.Robert T. Lehe - 2014 - Religious Studies 50 (4):505-520.
    An interesting version of religious pluralism has been proposed by Peter Byrne in his Prolegomena to Religious Pluralism. Byrne’s pluralism attempts to unite an affirmation of the equal cognitive and salvific success of all major religions with a realist view of religious truth coupled with a severe agnosticism about specific descriptions of religious reality. I argue that Byrne’s proposal, while an improvement upon non-realist versions of pluralism, fails to resolve the tensions between its agnosticism about detailed descriptions of the sacred (...)

    Realism and Reality.Robert T. Lehe - 1998 - Journal of Philosophical Research 23:219-237.
    Although there are a host of distinct issues associated with discussions of realism and antirealism, the most fundamental is the ontological question whether there is a mind-independent world, a world with a determinate, intrinsic nature that is independent of our theoretical and practical interaction with it. That there is such a mind-independent world is the minimal and most crucial requirement of realism. The main purpose of this paper is to defend this ontological requirement of realism. The ontological requirement involves two (...)

    Coherence—Criterion and Nature of Truth.Robert Tad Lehe - 1983 - Idealistic Studies 13 (3):177-189.
    In his recent book, The Coherence Theory of Truth, Nicholas Rescher emphasizes the difference between the question of the criterion of truth and the question of the nature of truth. A particular position concerning the criterion of truth, he says, may leave open a variety of options on the question of the nature of truth. There have been several recent attempts to defend coherence theories of rational justification in which coherence is held to be a criterion of truth, but the (...)
