Moving from Cause to Effect

Lecture no. 16 from the course: Argumentation: The Study of Effective Reasoning

 Moving from Cause to Effect

Taught by Professor David Zarefsky | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Causal inferences assert that one factor has influence over another. Influence must be inferred because it cannot be observed. The lecture will consider meanings of the concept of causation, purposes for which causal arguments are used, and methods that have been used to infer the existence of causal influence. The lecture will conclude by discussing factors that can undermine a causal inference.
