In “Truth and Molinism”, Trenton Merricks criticizes the argument against Molinism at the core of William Hasker's book, God, Time, and Knowledge. Merricks claims that, if Hasker's argument against Molinism is a good one, it also refutes theories of subjunctive and counterfactual conditionals that endorse ‘centering’ (like those of Stalnaker and Lewis). Merricks also offers a direct objection to Hasker's argument. But Hasker's anti‐Molinist argument can be embraced by advocates of centering; and Merricks's refutation of Hasker fails
