A consistent number of schools of thought enliven the philosophical debate on how we can manage the truth-values of the propositions about the future. In the first part of this paper we will draw an overall view of the discussion: we will propose a historical reconstruction of the arguments – from Aristotle and Diodoro Crono to Prior – that will give us the instruments to understand the current state of the debate. After that, in the second part, we will argue that the discussion between the theory of the true future and the Prior’s ockhamist theory is not based on two different concepts of contingency, but instead on the lack of distinction between two differents meanings of ‘determined’ inside the ockhamist system. Recovering this distinction is the first step to understand that the real competition between the two systems is not about contigency, but only about the determination of the future.
