Logic of belief: an Ockhamian point of view
Keywords:Ockhamism, compatibilism, philosophy of religion, Plantinga, Hasker, free will and grounding
The aim of the paper is to analyze, from an Ockhamian perspective, some relevant theories in the contemporary philosophy of religion. Alvin Plantinga’s Ockhamism is the crucial topic in this reading. We have noted some misunderstandings in the use of Ockhamian concepts and theories about topics such as theological fatalism and God’s foreknowledge. These problems show how Ockham’s point of view is, to this day, the best way to conceive of a compatibilist relation between the freedom of human will and the divine foreknowledge.
