(p.73) 4 Trenton Merricks on Some Anti‐Molinist Arguments

William Hasker

Oxford University Press

Trenton Merricks has developed a critique of Hasker's 1989 argument against Molinism. He claims that the argument targets not only Molinism itself but other related positions as well; possibly including libertarian free will. However, his argument relies on a premise, ‘restricted centering’, which Hasker has denied, rendering his objection question-begging. He also criticizes an anti-Molinist argument developed by Kenneth Perszyk, but his critique fails to address Perszyk's main contention.

Keywords:   Trenton Merricks, Kenneth Perszyk, counterfactuals, centering, Molinism, consequence argument
