  • Because Without Causeby Marc Lange

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 72.99 US$ 62.77

    Not all scientific explanations work by describing causal connections between events or the world's overall causal structure.

This book proposes new philosophical accounts of many kinds of non-causal explanations in science and mathematics. more...
