God and Necessity

Brian Leftow

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses God’s creatively thinking up the whole content of secular truth, including the natures of all possible creatures. It argues that God must think up some creatures or other, that He does so all at once, that nothing constrains Him to think up any creature He has in fact thought up, and that it was in Him to think up different creatures instead.

Keywords:   God, creative, secular truth, possible creature
