Against Rea on Presentism and Fatalism
T In [Rea 2006], Michael Rea presents an argument that presentism is incompatible with a libertarian view of human freedom and the unrestricted principle of bivalence. I aim to show that Rea’s argument fails. The outline of my paper is as follows. In Part I, I briefly explain the above three views and I present Rea’s
argument. In Part II, I argue that one of the premises of the argument is unjustified.
