Abstract
Some necessary connection theorists maintain that an analysis of causation requires some kind of sui generis metaphysical modal notion such as physical or nomic necessary. However, among necessary connection theorists there are some who argue that the causal connection is not properly understood as merely “physical” or irreducibly “nomic,” but as one of logical entailment. A cause logically entails its effect. Prominent among these theorists have been idealists such as Brand Blanshard.
