In class we discussed Molinism in a very simple and stripped-down way. Those who are interested in the details might consider starting with the following online resources:
* Catholic Encyclopedia article on Molinism.
* Middle Knowledge, Truth–Makers, and the “Grounding Objection” by William Lane Craig discusses a common objection against Molinism.
Today we discussed Leibniz, looking at some ways in which he is similar to Molina and some ways in which he is very different.
Reading for next week: Finish the Discourse.
