We have causal theories of reference, perception, knowledge, content and numerous other things. If it were to turn out that causation doesn’t exist, we would be in serious trouble! 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’. In these lectures you will be introduced to the most influential theories of causation, the motivations for them and arguments behind them, and the problems they face.

Yoga For Your Mind
With an eye for didactics and only marred by a certain impatience with non-mainstream world views and unusual questions (“You are trying to be clever here”), Marianne Talbot presents the major theories of causation such that even non-philosophers with some training in rigorous thinking will be able to follow this enlightening and entertaining podcast. Yoga for your mind!
