    A Case for Necessitarianism.Amy Karofsky - 2021 - New York: Routledge.
    Book Abstract -/- A Case for Necessitarianism Amy Karofsky orcid: 0000-0003-4397-4203 -/- The book provides a case for and explanation of necessitarianism—the view that absolutely nothing about the world could have been otherwise in any way whatsoever—and a refutation of contingentarianism—the view that at least some thing could have been different otherwise. Because it is the first defense of necessitarianism in over 300 years, it fills a significant gap in Western philosophical literature. -/- The book is aimed at upper-level undergraduate (...)

    Descartes no es un conceptualista.Amy Karofsky - 2002 - Areté. Revista de Filosofía 14 (2):191-209.
    Algunas interpretaciones contemporáneas de Descartes sugieren que él defiende una posición conceptualista en relación con las verdades eternas. De acuerdo con esta lectura de Descartes, las modalidades se determinan por lo que las mentes de un universo puedan concebir. Dado que lo que es posible depende de aquello que los intelectos puedan concebir, no hay concepto de posibilidad alguno que preceda a la existencia de los intelectos. De ahí que, antes de la existencia de los intelectos,no es el caso que (...)

    God, Modalities, and Conceptualism.Amy Karofsky - 2003 - Philosophy and Theology 15 (2):257-271.
    God’s relationship to modalities poses a serious problem for the theist. If God determines modalities, then it seems that he can do anything. If, on the other hand, modalities determine God’s actions, then it seems that he is not genuinely free. Conceptualism offers a solution to this problem by maintaining that modalities are determined by what is conceivable for the intellects of the universe that God has chosen to create. Prior to the creation of intellects, there are no modalities restricting (...)
