Description
                                                  Reading Response 6 PHI 101 (1) In “So It Goes” J. David Velleman talks about what it is for an object to ‘perdure’ and  what it is for an object to ‘endure’. In your own words explain what it means for an object  to ‘perdure’ and what it is for an object to ‘endure’.(2 points)           Endurance: the view that all of an object is present at every time at which it exists.           Perdurance: the opposed view that only part of something is present at any time at  which the thing exists. (2) In pages 360­361 of “So it Goes” J. David Velleman talks about a theory of time called  presentism. (a) what is presentism? (b) according to Velleman, why can’t objects endure  if presentism is true? (3 points)  (3) In “The Powers of Rational Beings: Freedom of the Will” Peter Van Inwagen discusses  the notions of ‘free will’ and ‘determinism’. In your own words, explain what ‘free will’  is, and provide an example, and explain what ‘determinism’ is and provide an example. (4  points)  Free will is the ability to make choices without external coercion. Determinism is a belief in the inevitability of causation. E
