Abstract

The metaphysics of miracles put forward in my article, 'Miracles: metaphysics, physics and physicalism', above (125–147) are, argues Robert Larmer, both unnecessary and unworkable. Here, I try more clearly to explain that my goal of saving important physicalist intuitions that are incompatible with both the 'open-systems' and 'exemption' approaches' use of powerful ceteris paribus clauses. I also defend the two mechanisms proposed in the paper from Larmer's criticisms.
