Unravelling the Methodology of Causal Pluralism

Philosophica 81 (1) (2008)
Abstract
In this paper we try to bring some clarification in the recent debate on causal pluralism. Our first aim is to clarify what it means to have a pluralistic theory of causation and to articulate the criteria by means of which a certain theory of causation can or cannot qualify as a pluralistic theory of causation. We also show that there is currently no theory on the market which meets these criteria, and therefore no full-blown pluralist theory of causation exists. Because of this, we offer a general strategy by means of which pluralist theories of causation can be developed.
