|Title:||The right structure for a causal theory of action||Authors:||Stout, Rowland||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4973||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.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Peter Lang||Copyright (published version):||2002, Peter Lang||Keywords:||Causal theory;Deviant causal chains;Action;Proximate causation;Sustained causation||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
