Mentale Verursachung und mereologische Erklärungen. Eine einfache Lösung für ein komplexes Problem

Abstract
In den empirischen Wissenschaften wird von unterschiedlichen Arten von Erklärungen Gebrauch gemacht. Einige dieser Erklärungen dienen dazu, das Eintreten von Veränderungen zu erklären. Andere – die mereologischen Erklärungen – sollen die interne Struktur eines aus Teilen zusammengesetzten Ganzen einsichtig machen. Stellt man dies in Rechnung, lassen sich die Probleme, welche Phänomene mentaler Verursachung aufzuwerfen scheinen, beheben. Empirical sciences use not only one but various types of explanations. One of these explanations are the well known transition explanations. Others consist of mereological explanations – explanations that serve to give insight in the relations between complex wholes and their parts. The problems which seem to be inherent to cases of mental causation may be solved when these cases are seen as objects of mereological explanations, or as objects of combinations of mereological and transition explanations.
