Your wish is my command. Perhaps the Beast could give a short description of his dissertation in this thread, too.

My aim was to determine whether human free will is compatible with the existence of a divine omniscient being, exploring some other solutions as well as my own.

After an introductory chapter expounding two forms of the Foreknowledge Dilemma (Accidental and Causal Necessity) with consideration for TNP 1 and 2, I move into the Atemporal Solution, in which I explore the Boethian varient and the ET-Simultaneity approach as well as the A- vs.B-theory objection. Subsequently, I give a brief (due to word limit) exploration of Molinism, with focus on possible worlds and the inference to individual world determinism (I.e - That a situation can be deterministic and unique to one world). In the final chapter I consider Frankfurtian responses to the PAP and omnitemporality vis-a-vis Craig and the 4D model presented in 1991 by Zagzebski, before setting up and presenting my own solution. The dissertation ends with a concluding statement.
