Summary
Pragmatic arguments for theism are designed to support belief even if one lacks evidence that theism is more likely than not. This work proposes that there is a sound version of the most well-known argument of this kind, 'Pascal's Wager', & explores the issues involved - in epistemology, the ethics of belief, decision theory, & theology
