About this product
- DescriptionJohn Carroll undertakes a careful philosophical examination of laws of nature, causation, and other related topics. He argues that laws of nature are t susceptible to the sort of philosophical treatment preferred by empiricists. Indeed he shows that emperically pure matters of fact need t even determine what the laws are. Similar, even stronger, conclusions are drawn about causation. Replacing the traditional view of laws and causation requiring some kind of foundational legitimacy, the author argues that these phemena are inextricably intertwined with everything else. This distinctively clear and detailed discussion of what it is to be a law will be valuable to a broad swathe of philosophers in metaphysics, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of science.
