    Božanska jednostavnost i mit o modalnom kolapsu
    European Journal of Analytic Philosophy 18 (2): 7-33. 2022.
    Ovaj rad odgovara na argument modalnog kolapsa protiv božanske jednostavnosti ili klasičnog teizma koji nude neoklasični ili kompleksni teisti.

Fundamental to Nāṣir’s method is a form o…Read more
