An Anti‐Molinist Replies

Show Summary Details


William Lane Craig has criticized nearly every important claim made in the course of ‘Yet Another Anti‐Molinist Argument’. Zimmerman replies to Craig's main criticisms of the three stages of that argument. The objections to the first two stages misfire due to Craig's gratuitous redefinition of what Zimmerman means by calling Molinist conditionals ‘brute’. Craig's objections to the final stage are more interesting; but, ultimately, they do not seriously undermine Zimmerman's case against Molinism.
