    In the Name of God: The Evolutionary Origins of Religious Ethics and Violence.John Teehan - 2010 - Malden, MA: Wiley-Blackwell.

    The Cognitive Bases of the Problem of Evil.John Teehan - 2013 - The Monist 96 (3):325-348.
    The problem of evil is a central issue in the philosophy of religion, for countless believers and skeptics alike. The attempt to resolve the dilemma of positing the existence of an omnipotent, omnibenevolent, creator while recognizing the presence of evil in the world has engaged philosophers and theologians for millennia. This article will not seek to resolve the dilemma but rather to explore the question of why there is a problem of evil. That is, why is it that gods are (...)

    Kantian Ethics: After Darwin.John Teehan - 2003 - Zygon 38 (1):49-60.
    In this article I reevaluate Immanuel Kant's moral philosophy from a post–Darwinian perspective. Taking an evolutionary approach to human reasoning and incorporating some recent work on the science of the emotions, I argue that the Kantian bifurcation of reason and emotion, which underlies his moral philosophy, is no longer tenable. Kant's practical defense of his ethics as being the only option that can save morality from the dangers posed by naturalism is also considered and rejected. Instead, I argue that an (...)
