Preview

This chapter argues for the causal networking of value. In making it plausible, it has become apparent how such causation would mesh smoothly with the natural fabric of the world. The argument from explanatory idleness, the argument from causal exclusion, mental causation, causation by values, causation and convexity, and causation and properties are discussed.

Keywords: causal networking; causation; exclusion argument; explanatory idleness
