This chapter looks at the problem of where we get our beliefs about the possibility or necessity of certain states of affairs. It argues that there are innate aspects of the cognitive operating system that include processes like recursion and instantiation, and these underlie the necessity of logical and mathematical thought. It considers the issue of whether one can legitimately take a similar position with respect to causal systems.

Keywords:   deduction, mathematics, causal knowledge, cognition, perception
