The Ethics of Belief Clifford, W.K. CreateSpace (August 12, 2008)

The is a collection of essays regarding belief and the importance belief plays with regards to our actions. Clifford argues that it is never the case to believe something on insufficient evidence. In fact, to do so is immoral. James critiques this claim with his own by saying that at times we are fully justified in holding beliefs for pragmatic reasons. A.J. Burger’s final essay critiques James’s claims by pointing out how problematic the pragmatist’s claims really are.
