A note on Putnam and the transitivity of the real

Philosophical Studies 23 (6):414 - 417 (1972)
Abstract
Professor Putnam's argument that future happenings are already real is clarified and examined. It is argued that, contrary to other claims in the literature, Putnam's premises are consistent, but that the field of the relation R on which he bases his conclusion is such that the conclusion does not in fact follow.
