Causation

  1. Causation
    Expository Part: What do you take to be the most promising formulation of a reductionist theory to causation,
    and what are some of the most important objections that have been directed against the account in question?
    Original part: Either
    • 1. defend the theory by giving reasons for rejecting all or some of these objections in the literature (and then
    introduce some possible objections to your defense and a further defense against such possible objections to
    your defense) or
    • 2. modify the theory of causation to take account of these objections in the literature that you (and then
    introduce some possible objections to your modified theory and a further defense against these possible
    objections to your modification along with your reply to those possible objections) or
    • 3. give new objections to the theory not found in the readings (and then introduce some possible objections to
    your new objections and a further defense against such possible objections to your new objections.)
