    Individual Responsibility for Health: Decision, not Discovery.Scot D. Yoder - 2002 - Hastings Center Report 32 (2):22-31.
    Health policy sometimes hinges on claims about the responsibility borne by people or corporations for health outcomes. We don't want these claims to be arbitrary, so we construe them as discoveries of plain fact. But we're mistaken. They are interwoven with our values and social institutions. Recognizing that they are allows us to debate them more honestly and thoroughly.

    Making Space for Agnosticism: A Response to Dawkins and James.Scot D. Yoder - 2013 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 34 (2):135-153.
    A common strategy in philosophical debate is to limit the alternative positions available in order to increase the appeal of one's own position. Unfortunately, this has too often been true in debates regarding the justification of religious faith. Both defenders and critics of religious faith have tried to rule out agnosticism as a viable alternative in order to support their own arguments for or against religious faith. Unfortunately, this strategy only encourages what is already the problematic polarization of religious discourse. (...)

    Emergence and Religious Naturalism: The Promise and Peril.Scot D. Yoder - 2014 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 35 (2):153-171.
    While the topics of emergentism and religious naturalism have both received renewed attention in the past two decades, the recent publication of several books and numerous articles arguing for emergentism and its religious significance suggests that they are converging in interesting ways. Indeed, religious naturalists such as cell biologist Ursula Goodenough, complexity theorist Stuart Kauffman, and philosopher Loyal Rue have been important voices in this conversation. While they cannot be easily classified as religious naturalists, biological anthropologist Terrence Deacon and theologian (...)

    Review Peirce, James, and a Pragmatic Philosophy of Religion Woell John W. Continuum International Publishing Group London.Scot D. Yoder - 2015 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 36 (2):201-204.
    Perhaps the best way to understand this book is to see it as the first installment on a larger project. Woell’s ultimate goal is to write a pragmatic philosophy of religion, but this work is not it. This preliminary project attempts to clear the way for the larger project by reclaiming pragmatism in such a way that it can provide an adequate framework for doing the philosophy of religion. In other words, this is a book about pragmatism that serves as (...)
