Ken Perszyk documents the resurgence of Molinism in contemporary philosophy of religion. He explains the main motivation (historical and contemporary) for endorsing the Molinist notion of middle knowledge, and in particular its chief objects—counterfactuals of freedom. He sketches the main lines of objection—theoretical and ‘applied’—to it. There are also brief descriptions of the contents of the essays that follow.

Keywords: Molinism; middle knowledge; counterfactuals of freedom; providence; objections to Molinism
