Normative Causation

Kaiserman, Alex (2014) Normative Causation. In: UNSPECIFIED.

Full text not available from this repository.


Both everyday and scientific causal judgements seem to be sensitive to normative features of cases. This paper defends a revision to the counterfactual account of causation that builds normativity into the truth conditions of causal claims. I defend this conclusion by an inference to the best explanation, raising problems with rival explanations appealing to pragmatics or ambiguity and highlighting the theoretical and genealogical motivations for my alternative.
