10 Wide Causation
- Oxford University Press
Mental causation faces two separate threats: ‘from below’ and ‘from within’. With so much effort gone into distinguishing these threats in recent years, no one seems to have noticed that they are connected, and in a way that makes them more formidable as a package than taken separately. This chapter presents three arguments: that within not an application of the same principle used to defeat below; that below falls to a principle that is tolerant of intentional causation, albeit intentional causation of an interestingly unexpected sort; and that within relies on an enormously stronger principle that undermines just about any intuitive causal relation you care to mention.
