    Relativism, Nihilism, and God.Philip E. Devine - 1989
    This book presents a defense of the reality of God in the sense in which Nietzsche proclaimed His death. It explores various contemporary versions of Nietzsche's maxim God is dead and proposes an alternative to them. Philip E.Devine critically examines three views that, in one way or another, accept the death of God and take it as central to the intellectual life: pragmatism, which asserts that the only end of the intellectual life is the pursuit of worldly goods other than (...)

    Sex and Gender a Spectrum of Views.Philip E. Devine & Celia Wolf-Devine - 2002 - Wadsworth Publishing Company.
    SEX AND GENDER: A SPECTRUM OF VIEWS provides a medium for discussion and debate about today's most provocative issues concerning human sexuality and the relationships between masculinity and femininity. Including a spectrum of views that ranges from the stridently conservative to the progressively feminist, this anthology engages students in these subjects using a wider range of standpoints than is typical of such readers.

    What’s Wrong with Torture?Philip E. Devine - 2009 - International Philosophical Quarterly 49 (3):317-332.
    Many of us want to say that there is an absolute—or at least a virtually absolute—prohibition on torturing people. But we live in a world in which firm moral restraints of all sorts are hard to defend. Neither contemporary conventional morality, nor any of the available moral theories, provides adequate support for the deliverances of the “wisdom of repugnance” in this area. Nor do they support casuistry capable of distinguishing torture from forms of rough treatment. I here make some suggestions (...)

    “Exists” and St. Anselm’s Argument.Philip E. Devine - 1977 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 3 (1):59-70.
    This paper examines interpretations of the doctrine that "exists" is not a predicate. None, it is concluded, is both true and a refutation of St. Anselm's "ontological" argument for the existence of God.

    Against Superkitten Ethics.Philip E. Devine - 2011 - International Philosophical Quarterly 51 (4):429-436.
    I here criticize the use of science-fiction examples in ethics, chiefly, though not solely, by defenders of abortion. We have no reliable intuitions concerning such examples—certainly nothing strong enough to set against the strong intuition that infanticide is virtually always wrong.
