Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Religion Volume 3

Michael J. Almeida

Oxford University Press

Genuine modal realism and counterpart theory afford theists interesting ways to resolve some recalcitrant problems in philosophical theology. There are straightforward solutions to the problem of No Best World, the Modal Problem of Evil and the problem of the Less-than-Best World. But genuine modal realism affords a solution to even more difficult problems including how a morally perfect being might fail to prevent gratuitous evil and how a morally perfect being might perform a morally wrong action.

Keywords:   modal realism, counterpart theory, modal problem of evil, no best world, gratuitous evil
