This is the first English translation of Causalite' et Lois de La
Nature, and is an important contribution to the theory of
causation. Max Kistler reconstructs a unified concept of causation
that is general enough to adequately deal with both elementary
physical processes, and the macroscopic level of phenomena we
encounter in everyday life. This book will be of great interest to
philosophers of science and metaphysics, and also to students and
scholars of philosophy of mind where concepts of causation and law
play a prominent role. Contents1. What is a Causal Relation? 2.
