Summary

This book is intended to give an overview of the state of the art in the philosophy of causation. It intends to represent all the aspects that are treated in the philosophy of causation: some contributions consider a specific framework for a metaphysics of causation (such as a probabilistic view in terms of causes raising chances for certain effects or a regularity theory); others treat the relevance of physics (especially quantum physics), and particular problems to which an adequate theory of causation has to pay attention. The contributors: Thomas Breuer, Phil Dowe, Michael Esfeld, Gerd Graßhoff, Marion Ledwig, Michael May, Hugh Mellor, Eberhard Müller, Gerhard Schulz, Wolfgang Spohn, Max Urchs
