9780199673452: Causation: A User's Guide
Críticas:

This engaging volume ... serves to promote a discussion about basic methodological principles that has ramifications for every philosophical discipline. This is a deep and important conversation, and Causation: A Users Guide provides a challenging and philosophically central test case. This is not a book just for students: it is an important methodological treatise in its own right ( Tim Maudlin, Philosophy of Science)

Críticas:

"Paul and Hall skillfully organize and clarify salient problems inherent in recent deterministic accounts of causation in a clear and discerning exposition appealing to beginner and expert alike. Their account yields deep insight and understanding of a wide variety of problems in the investigation of causality." -L.C. Archie, Lander University, CHOICE

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 230 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Causation is at once familiar and mysterious. Many believe that the causal relation is not directly observable, but that we nevertheless can somehow detect its presence in the world. Common sense seems to have a firm grip on causation, and much work in the natural and social sciences relies on the idea. Yet neither common sense nor extensive philosophical debate has led us to anything like agreement on the correct analysis of the concept of causation, or an account of the metaphysical nature of the causal relation. Contemporary debates are driven by opposing motivations, conflicting intuitions, and unarticulated methodological assumptions. Causation: A User s Guide cuts a clear path through this confusing but vital landscape. L. A. Paul and Ned Hall guide the reader through the most important philosophical treatments of causation, negotiating the terrain by taking a set of examples as landmarks. Special attention is given to counterfactual and related analyses of causation. Using a methodological principle based on the close examination of potential counterexamples, they clarify the central themes of the debate about causation, and cover questions about causation involving omissions or absences, preemption and other species of redundant causation, and the possibility that causation is not transitive. Along the way, Paul and Hall examine several contemporary proposals for analyzing the nature of causation and assess their merits and overall methodological cogency. The book is designed to be of value both to trained specialists and those coming to the problem of causation for the first time. It provides the reader with a broad and sophisticated view of the metaphysics of the causal relation. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199673452
