Next, the publication bargains an application-oriented method of the topic. the writer exhibits that causal nets can examine philosophical matters relating to causation. He does this by way of exemplary functions. the 1st comprises an review of Jim Woodward’s interventionist concept of causation. the second one bargains a contribution to the recent mechanist debate.
