Presentism and fatalism

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 84 (4):511 – 524 (2006)
Abstract
It is widely believed that presentism is compatible with both a libertarian view of human freedom and an unrestricted principle of bivalence. I argue that, in fact, presentists must choose between bivalence and libertarianism: if presentism is true, then either the future is open or no one is free in the way that libertarians understand freedom.
