    Inequality, incentives, criminality, and blame.Christopher Lewis - 2016 - Legal Theory 22 (2):153-180.
    ABSTRACTThe disadvantaged have incentives to commit crime, and to develop criminogenic dispositions, that limit the extent to which their co-citizens can blame them for breaking the law. This is true regardless of whether the causes of criminality are mainly “structural” or “cultural.” We need not assume that society as a whole is unjust in order to accept this conclusion. And doing so would neither stigmatize nor otherwise disrespect the disadvantaged.

    Schizotypy and Religiosity : The Magic of Prayer.Christopher Alan Lewis & Michael J. Breslin - 2015 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 37 (1):84-97.
    The term schizotypy is used to describe a diverse range of characteristics symptomatic of schizotypal personality disorder and borderline personality disorder. An emerging body of research is concerned with the relationship between schizotypy and religiosity. Mixed findings suggest a gender-specific, weak positive association between schizotypy and religiosity. The present aim was to clarify the relationship between schizotypy and religiosity by employing a multidimensional measure of prayer as a measure of religiosity. A sample of 371 Irish respondents completed the Measure of (...)

    Mental and physical health correlates of the psychological impact of the first wave of COVID-19 among general population of Pakistan.Messum Ali, Christopher Alan Lewis, Syeda Salma Hasan, Rabia Iftikhar, Muhammad Umar Fayyaz & Fayyaz Ahmed Anjum - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    The primary aim was to assess the role of mental and physical health of COVID-19 and its psychological impact in the general population of Pakistan during the first wave of COVID-19. It was hypothesized that there would be a significant predictive association among socio-demographic variables, psychological impact and mental health status resulting from COVID-19, and poor self-reported physical health would be significantly associated with adverse psychological impact and poor mental health status because of COVID-19. A cross-sectional survey research design was (...)

    Beyond death: theological and philosophical reflections on life after death.Dan Cohn-Sherbok & Christopher Lewis (eds.) - 1995 - New York: St. Martin's Press.
    Throughout history human beings have been preoccupied with personal survival after death. As a consequence, most world religions proclaim that life continues beyond the grave, and they have depicted the Hereafter in a variety of forms. These various conceptions constitute answers to the most perplexing spiritual questions: Will we remember our former lives in the Hereafter? Will we have bodies? Can bodiless souls recognise each other? Will we continue to have personal identity? Will we be punished or rewarded, or absorbed (...)

    A Trial of Patience.Christopher Lewis - 2022 - Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics 12 (2):126-128.
    In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:A Trial of PatienceChristopher LewisIt seemed like after two weeks, my “flu” symptoms should have resolved. I was not eating, could not hold anything down, and had no energy. It was easy enough for my pediatrician at the time to attribute this to a common virus. This was not sitting well with my parents, however. My mother decided to take me to the emergency room and get me evaluated (...)

    Introducing the Modified Paranormal Belief Scale: Distinguishing Between Classic Paranormal Beliefs, Religious Paranormal Beliefs and Conventional Religiosity Among Undergraduates in Northern Ireland and Wales.Emyr Williams, Christopher Lewis & Leslie Francis - 2009 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 31 (3):345-356.
    Previous empirical studies concerned with the association between paranormal beliefs and conventional religiosity have produced conflicting evidence. Drawing on Rice's distinction between classic paranormal beliefs and religious paranormal beliefs, the present study proposed a modified form of the Tobacyk Revised Paranormal Belief Scale to produce separate scores for these two forms of paranormal belief, styled ‘religious paranormal beliefs’ and ‘classic paranormal beliefs’. Data provided by a sample of 143 undergraduate students in Northern Ireland and Wales, who completed the Francis Scale (...)

  7. Sensible religion.Christopher Lewis (ed.) - 2014 - Burlington: Ashgate.
    The validity of the religious quest is defended across faiths. Yet it is not only the quest, but also the way in which religions have developed which is of central significance. Their committed followers live ordinary lives in the mainstream of the world, working out their faith in relation to life. In Sensible Religion, leading thinkers in world religions explore how religions are in conversation with other disciplines, bringing a transcendent perspective to the discussion. Countering the argument that religion is (...)

    The fortunes of Richard Swineshead in the time of Galileo.Christopher J. T. Lewis - 1976 - Annals of Science 33 (6):561-584.
    There is a widely acknowledged, albeit still imprecisely defined, connection between the ‘calculatory’ analyses of local motion developed within the fourteenth century ‘Merton School’ and Galileo Galilei's later treatment of natural motion. The present essay is intended to cast some light on the possible sources and significance of Galileo's putative familiarity with the medieval discussions through a study of the fortunes of the most typical representative of the School, Richard Swineshead. Particular attention is paid to the writings of such scholastic (...)

    The relationship between personality and religion among undergraduate students in Germany.Hans-Georg Ziebertz, Christopher Alan Lewis & Leslie J. Francis - 2002 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 24 (1):121-127.
    A sample of 311 undergraduate students in Germany completed German translations of the short form Revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire together with the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity. The data demonstrated that psychoticism is fundamental to individual differences in religiosity, while religiosity is independent of both extraversion and neuroticism. These findings are consistent with those from a series of studies employing the same measure of religiosity among school pupils, students and adults in the UK.

    Temporal Stability of the Francis Scale of Attitude Toward Christianity Short-Form Among 10- To 12-Year-Old English Children: Test-Retest Data Over 15 Weeks. [REVIEW]Sharon Mary Cruise, Christopher Alan Lewis & Bill Lattimer - 2007 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 29 (1):259-268.
    Recently three studies have reported on the test-retest reliability of the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity; however, these studies were limited to comparatively small samples . The present study examined the temporal stability of the 7-item version of the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity over a 15-week period among a sample of 581 English children aged between 10 and 12 years. Data demonstrated that stability across the two administrations was very high ; however, there was a significant change (...)
