One of the articles I've had to read for my "Philosophy of Religion" class was William James' "The Will To Believe", and I am very impressed, against my will, as it were. It is a most persuasive and intellectually challenging read. I definitely recommend to anybody interested in debunking religious faith -- I was in for a rude shock. Despite my radical empiricist convictions in almost all matters of philosophy, I find myself curiously swayed by James' argument.
