Fatalism: Logical and Theological

Faith and Philosophy 16 (2):233-238 (1999)
Abstract
The logical fatalist holds that the past truth of future tense propositions is incompatible with libertarian freedom. The theological fatalist holds that the combination of God’s past beliefs with His essential omniscience is incompatible with libertarian freedom. There is an ongoing dispute over the relation between these two kinds of fatalism: some philosophers believe that the problems are equivalent while others believe that the theological problem is more difficult. We offer a diagnosis of this dispute showing that one’s view of the modal status of God’s existence and God’s rdation to free creatures should determine one’s position on the relation between the two fatalisms
