Causation, Projection, Inference, and Agency [chapter]

Helen Beebee
2015 Passions and Projections  
Ramsey, 'General Propositions and Causality' (1929, 160) is the thought that what is projected is a habit of inference.  ...  Causation is, of course, a conditional relationship in a sense: effects generally depend on their causes, and there is a long-standing tradition within Humeanism of understanding causal laws ('As cause  ...  Counterfactual accounts also depend upon an adequate story about the asymmetry of causation; and Lewis's story runs in terms of what he calls the 'asymmetry of overdetermination', which in turn grounds  ...

Learning From Fiction in Life and Philosophy

Allen RT
2021 Philosophy International Journal  
Literary fictions can go beyond purely factual knowledge to reveal how it felt to live at a given time and place; to engage the whole person, and not just the thinkers, in both the characters portrayed  ...  ; to show that there is more than formal learning to what happens in schools, and how important it can be; and generally to give narratives of what life really is or can be, and not just the abstractions  ...  Lewis somewhere said, it is publicly available and may be generally known, unlike a true story of the Smiths down the author's road.  ...

Causal Strategic Inference in Networked Microfinance Economies

Mohammad Tanvir Irfan, Luis E. Ortiz

COUNTERFACTUALS AND THE ANALYSIS OF NECESSITY

Boris Kment
2006 Philosophical Perspectives  
This paper is, in part, a straightforward exercise in philosophical analysis: I will try to define metaphysical necessity.  ...  But I will combine this aim with another: I want to know which cognitive practices of ordinary life gave rise to the concept of necessity, and what role the notion plays in these practices.  ...  Here is a typical example, taken from a paper by Edward Craig, in which the author comments on the fact that conventionalist accounts of necessary truth once enjoyed widespread popularity: This popularity  ...
