This shows again that a necessitation
approach is off the mark.
The view for which he is famous is that laws are contingent relations of necessitation
between distinct universals, and he explicitly denies that property identities are laws (see Armstrong 1983, 138; 2005, 315-6).
However, in this instance the illumination is not of the sort that shows necessitation
since these are theorems, then by the rule of necessitation

This has repercussions for Nussbaum's approach, for it means that the act of determining what shapes the historical constitution of a present actuality is thoroughly political, because no act of determining the necessitation

A complication arises in characterizing the that's-all claim in terms of minimality where a priori entailment, rather than necessitation

In order for this freedom of choice of means to be meaningful, Thomas insists that there must be necessitation

These everyday observances seem to be fourfold, and to consist in guidance by nature (huphegesi phuseos), necessitation

Then presumably under such conditions we have the right kind of necessitation
relation between "the particle having momentum p at time [t.
