    Winch and Instrumental Pluralism.Berel Dov Lerner - 1995 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 25 (2):180-191.
    Peter Winch and Ludwig Wittgenstein have opposed the idea that traditional religion and magic are practiced in order to gain practical, instrumental ends. Their argument rests on interpretive charity: other cultures would have to be unbelievably irrational to believe in magic's practical effectiveness. In this paper, I show that Winch's own philosopical doctrine makes room for the possibility of instrumental pluralism, the notion that different societies may possess different criteria of instrumental rationality. Judged in terms of a native criterion, the (...)

    Interfering with Divinely Imposed Suffering.Berel Dov Lerner - 2000 - Religious Studies 36 (1):95-102.
    In the course of presenting his celebrated 'vale of soul-making' theodicy, John Hick claims that in a world where all human suffering is either justly deserved divine punishment or imposed by God for the spiritual growth of the sufferer, people would lack opportunity to be involved in genuine acts of deep compassion. I argue that the relief of divinely imposed suffering can be a morally valuable and spiritually beneficial activity, and mention ideas from the Jewish tradition which suggest that it (...)

    The RaMBaM writes in a famous halakhah from Hilkhot Teshuva (2:2): What is repentance [teshuva ]? It consists in this, that the sinner abandon his sin, remove it from his thoughts, and resolve in his heart never to repeat it, as it is said, "let the wicked forsake his way, and the man of iniquity his thoughts " (Isaiah 55:7); that he regret the past, as it is said, "Surely after that I turned I repented, after that I was instructed, (...)

    Understanding a Primitive Society.Berel Dov Lerner - 1995 - Religious Studies 31 (3):303-309.
    The anthropologist Mary Douglas has debunked the prevalent misconception that traditional societies are universally religious. I suggest that Peter Winch's celebrated essay on the magical notions and practices of Africa's Azande people, 'Understanding a Primitive Society', is a product of this 'myth of primitive piety'. In his essay, Winch criticizes the interpretation of Zande mysticism offered by Sir E. E. Evans-Pritchard, whose book "Witchcraft, Oracles and Magic Among the Azande " served as Winch's source of ethnographic data. A broader survey (...)
