    God’s relationship to modalities poses a serious problem for the theist. If God determines modalities, then it seems that he can do anything. If, on the other hand, modalities determine God’s actions, then it seems that he is not genuinely free. Conceptualism offers a solution to this problem by maintaining that modalities are determined by what is conceivable for the intellects of the universe that God has chosen to create. Prior to the creation of intellects, there are no modalities restricting (...)

    Book Abstract -/- A Case for Necessitarianism Amy Karofsky orcid: 0000-0003-4397-4203 -/- The book provides a case for and explanation of necessitarianism—the view that absolutely nothing about the world could have been otherwise in any way whatsoever—and a refutation of contingentarianism—the view that at least some thing could have been different otherwise.

    Descartes No Es Un Conceptualista.Amy Karofsky - 2002 - Areté. Revista de Filosofía 14 (2):191-209.
    “Descartes is not a Conceptualist”. Some contemporary interpretations of Descartes suggest that Descartes holds a conceptualist position with regard to the eternal truths. According to this reading of Descartes, modalities are determined by what is conceivable by the minds in a universe. Since what is possible depends upon what the intellects can conceive, prior to the existence of the intellects, there is no concept of possibility. Hence prior to creating a universe, it is not the case that anything is possible (...)
