LINK: Nate Shannon on Anderson and Welty’s Ambiguous Necessity

“In their argument for the existence of God from the laws of logic,* James Anderson and Greg Welty (AW) claim that the laws of logic exist necessarily. Their claim is that the laws of logic possess de re necessity, the type of necessity—metaphysical necessity—predicated of objects. How do they get there? They don’t, in my view, and their oversight is a smooth ambiguity between de re and de dicto necessity.”
