    Must God Create?Sandra L. Menssen & Thomas D. Sullivan - 1995 - Faith and Philosophy 12 (3):321-341.
    In this paper we evaluate two sets of theistic arguments against the traditional position that Cod created with absolute freedom. The first set features several variations of Leibniz’s basic proof that Cod must create the best possible world. The arguments in the second set base the claim that Cod must create on the Platonic or Dionysian principle that goodness is essentially self-diffusive. We argue that neither the Leibnizian nor the Dionysian arguments are successful.

    Berkeley’s Moral Philosophy.Thomas D. Sullivan - 1970 - Philosophical Studies (Dublin) 19:193-201.
    To discern the contours of a Berkeleian moral philosophy the article has been divided into four sections: the first introduces the moral importance of Berkeley’s new principle; in the second section the inter-dependence of morality and sociality is discussed; the third section identifies perennial moral problems and Berkeley’s success or failure in dealing with them; the fourth occupies itself with a notion of the common good that is socio-historical. Berkeley’s moral pragmatism is placed in relief in this way.

    Getting a Grip on the Philosophies of Thomas Aquinas: A Defense of Systematic Reconstruction.Thomas Sullivan & Russell Pannier - 2001 - Faith and Philosophy 18 (1):50-60.
    Because many of Aquinas’s most distinctive philosophical claims are embedded in theological works, in order to see what his philosophy comes to it is necessary to do a great deal of extracting and reconstructing. A major school of interpretation, however, cautions that such efforts are misguided, since Aquinas’ philosophy and theology are inextricably bound together. We respond that some versions of this inseparability thesis are too strong to be true and the remainder too weak to stand in the way of (...)

    The Darkness of God. [REVIEW]Thomas D. Sullivan - 1996 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (1):193-193.
    As the author explains, this work began as an attempt to answer the question: "Is there such a thing as mystical experience?" Deciding that the question, loaded with unexamined presuppositions, was perhaps not a good one to begin with, Turner redirected his investigation to the use of some key metaphors in the Christian neoplatonic tradition--light, darkness, inwardness, ascent, and union. The result is a carefully crafted and illuminating essay in medieval apophatic theology and apophatic anthropology.

    Is religion “noxious rubbish to be buried as deeply, as thoroughly, and as quickly as possible”? Philip Kitcher tells us that’s the dominant idea among atheists. In this paper I take a step back from the minutiae of standard journal articles to dispute the broad atheistic claim, and in the process suggest there is in fact a great deal to be said for religious belief. I argue that: It’s not highly implausible that there is a cause of the universe distinct (...)
