A New Defense of PSR Against the Charge of Necessitarianism

Lin, Martin. "Rationalism and Necessitarianism", Nous 46:3 (2012), 418-448.

If someone were to send me a copy, I wouldn't mind in the least.

Update: Thanks! (You know who you are.)

The author appears to accept necessitarianism, but argues that we can rely on a notion of "per se possibility" to do modal work for us, despite everything necessarily existing. At least, that's my impression of the paper thus far.

Here's an early preprint of it: http://fas-philosophy.rutgers.edu/mlin/rationalism.pdf

Thanks, Rayndeon. I've only skimmed it so far, but I think you're right that it looks to be a(n interesting) concessive reply.
