Project #77376 - Which ever topic you pick

In “The Ethics of Belief,” a twentieth century philosopher, W.K. Clifford, tells a story about a ship owner who, instead of thoroughly inspecting his ship and readying it for voyage, convinces himself that the ship is fine working order on the basis of wishful thinking rather than evidence etc.

William James’ pragmatist approach stands in sharp contrast to the evidentialist approach of W.K. Clifford. Recall that Clifford argued that we shouldn’t believe anything, including the proposition that God exists and other religious dogmas, unless there is good evidence to back up those beliefs. James, however, argues that we are sometimes forced into having to make decisions in the absence of evidence. Where Clifford’s policy hold demand that we withhold belief, James argues that, in the case, of religion, we need to make a choice.

 

Please Contrast Clifford’s Position with Williams James’ nonevidealist positions. Decide which position, Evidentialist or nonevdentialism, more closely aligns with your point of view and argue for that position.

 

Please do an APA style with 1500 words, and cite if you use other people ideas.  I gave examples above of our readings in class.
