Full Description


One of the most mind-boggling topics in philosophical theology is the relationship between divine foreknowledge and human freedom. If God has a complete knowledge of the future due to his epistemic perfection, how can a human being be free with respect to his future action? Divine Foreknowledge and Necessity defends the thesis that divine foreknowledge is compatible with human freedom. Author In-Kyu Song argues for such compatibility between the two by way of exploring what sort of necessity is involved in God's foreknowledge with regard to human freedom.
