Presentism and The Grounding Objection
School of Humanities and Social Sciences
- This article presents a reply to the primary objection to Presentism; that obvious, contingent truths need a grounding principle based in the past. Since Presentism rejects the past and emphasizes that only present things exists, the philosophy needs an explanation out of this dilemma. The author constructs his argument around the ideas of Lucretius and the supervenience principle.
