Example text

In both cases the price will be very high in the sense that essential parts of everyday reasoning have to be abandoned. 2. One can accept the classical idea of divine foreknowledge and drop the principle of the fixed past when it comes to God’s past foreknowledge. The price is that an even higher degree of divine knowledge has to be accepted, namely that of so-­ called middle knowledge. In addition, we have to accept that what God knows now can be influenced by our future decisions. It should be emphasised that although much of this discussion on time was originally formulated in a theological language, it can also be formulated in a secular language.

Plausibly, the concepts of agency, deliberation, decision, prudence, responsibility, causation and time are important concepts of this kind. If we think of our concepts as forming an interrelated web, with some concepts more central to the web than others, then it seems likely that the concepts of deliberation, prudence, responsibility, and causation will be at the centre of that web. For it is difficult to imagine discovering that our folk concepts of deliberation, agency and causation are unsatisfied.

In sum, if a concept, C, is resistant to error then for conditionals of the form: if the actual world is ____, then nothing satisfies C, there is a limited number of ways of filling out the ____ to render the conditional true. As discussed, we think our concept of time is like this for two reasons. First, it is very resistant to paradigm shifts in science and, second, it lies at the core of a conceptual web that is central to our self-conception as agents. Any analysis of our concept of time must both be consistent with the fact that our concept of time is resistant to error, and ideally should explain what features of the content of our concept render it resistant in this manner.
