The Ockham Society (Wednesday - Week 8, HT21)

Ockham Society

Halpern and Hitchcock have recently proffered an account of graded and comparative actual causation based on typicality and normality considerations (BJPS 66-2:413-457). In my talk, I critically evaluate HH’s proposal and present four (families of) cases where it fails to provide plausible analysis. I close by suggesting some options for HH.

Additional Information: Ockham will be held on MS Teams during HT21. Please email if you wish to attend.
