    William James and the Ethics of Belief.G. L. Doore - 1983 - Philosophy 58 (225):353 - 364.
    There is widespread agreement among philosophers that William James's well-known attempt to justify religious faith in ‘The Will to Believe’ is a failure. But despite the fact that James wrote his essay as a reply to the ‘tough-minded’ ethics of belief represented by such thinkers as W. K. Clifford and T. H. Huxley, the reasons commonly given today for rejecting James's position seem to be mostly based on the same principle of intellectual ethics that motivated Clifford and Huxley. Clifford, it (...)

    Religion Within the Limits of the Quest for the Highest Good.G. L. Doore - 1983 - Religious Studies 19 (3):345 - 359.

    The ‘Radically Empiricist’ Interpretation of Early Buddhist Nirvā A.Gary Doore - 1979 - Religious Studies 15 (1):65.
    In a recent book on the historical development of Buddhist thought, the author, David J. Kalupahana, has presented the thesis that early Buddhist philosophy, as found in the Pali Nikāyas and Chinese Āgamas, is radically different from that of later Buddhism, and supports his claim by tracing the historical divergence of the later schools from original Buddhism as he reconstructs it. He then goes on to assert that not only does early Buddhism differ philosophically from the later schools, but also (...)
