In 1985 Stove held a competition to find the "Worst Argument in the World", and awarded the prize to himself for the argument concluding "we cannot know things as they are in themselves". He called this argument "The Gem" and argued that it appeared widely in various forms.
His work in philosophy of science included criticisms of David Hume's Inductive scepticism. He offered a positive response to the problem of induction in his 1986 work, The Rationality of Induction. In Popper and After: Four Modern Irrationalists, Stove attacks Karl Popper, Thomas Kuhn, Imre Lakatos, and Paul Feyerabend.
Since his death in 1994 four collections of his writings have been published. Two were edited by art critic Roger Kimball: Against the Idols of the Age and Darwinian Fairytales. Kimball also wrote the foreword to What's Wrong With Benevolence, in which he writes "The most thrilling intellectual discovery of my adult life came in 1996 when I chanced upon the work of the Australian philosopher David Stove".
