Title: The right structure for a causal theory of action
Authors: Stout, Rowland
Permanent link:
Date: 2002
Abstract: In this paper, I argue that the way to understand causal notions is in terms of how something is caused rather than by what. To characterize how something is caused is to describe the way it is caused and this is to describe it as belonging to a certain process.
