The Inductive Metaphysics group invites all interested to attend the online workshop Causal Distinctions: Specificity and Beyond.
The workshop will focus on distinctions between different kind of causal relations. In the past few decades, concepts like specificity (Waters 2007), proportionality (Yablo 1992), sensitivity (Woodward 2006), and control (Campbell 2008) have been used to distinguish between different causal relations and to address classical philosophical problems, like exclusion arguments in philosophy of mind and causal parity arguments in philosophy of biology. This workshop gathers leading philosophers to investigate and discuss the role of these concepts in contemporary philosophy as well their relations to one another.
