Description
Summary:God unrestrictedly actualizes a state of affairs just in case God predicts that some state of affairs obtains. Unrestricted actualization ensures, inter alia, that, necessarily, God can actualize a morally perfect world - whether or not those worlds include libertarian free agents - and can actualize any possible future - whether or not that future is open. Chapter 11 addresses a series of thoughtful objections from Bruce Langtry on the possibility of unrestricted actualization (Chapter 10 in this volume).
