Bivalence and future contingency

Proietti, Carlo LU ; Sandu, Gabriel and Rivenc, Francois (2014) In Handbook of Formal Philosophy
Abstract
This work presents an overview of four different approaches to the problem of future contingency and determinism in temporal logics. All of them are bivalent, viz. they share the assumption that propositions

concerning future contingent facts have a determinate truth-value (true or false). We introduce Ockhamism, Peirceanism, Actualism and T x W semantics, the four most relevant bivalent alternatives in this area, and compare them from the point of view of their expressiveness and their underlying metaphysics of time.
