Marianne Talbot gives a series of 6 talks at Oxford exploring causation and some of the philosophical issues surrounding it.
Causation is an important concept that we all use in ordinary, everyday life, as well as in science. Causation is so important in fact that it has been said that: “With regard to our total conceptual apparatus, causation is the centre of the centre”, and it has been called called ‘the cement of the universe’. But what exactly is causation? In these lectures, the most influential theories of causation are introduced, as well as the motivations for them, the arguments behind them, and the problems they face.
