The Principle of Sufficient Reason
According to Alexander R. Pruss the Principle of Sufficient Reason (PSR) is essential to solve two classical problems of philosophy: 1) the problem of infinite regress and 2) the non-emergence of entities ex nihilo. Furthermore, the use of the PSR would correspond to an Aristotelian-Thomistic explanation of the metaphysical structure of individuals. However, the argument developed by Pruss has some defects that ultimately lead to the conclusion that the PSR is superfluous.
