Ultimacy and Alternative Possibilities

Abstract

I explore a key feature of Robert Kane's libertarianism (about which I have been puzzled for some time). Kane claims that we should separate issues of alternative possibilities from issues of ultimacy, but he further argues that they are connected in a certain way. I call into question this connection, and I continue to argue for a strict separation of considerations pertaining to alternative possibilities and "actual-sequence" considerations.
