The debate between causal realism and causal constructivism: metaphilosophical reflections

Erik Weber UGent (2008) PHILOSOPHICA (GENT). p.59-71
abstract
In this paper I discuss, from a metaphilosophical point of view, the debate between causal realism and causal constructivism. First, I argue that the debate, if it is couched in the general terms as it is traditionally done, rests on a false dilemma. Then I argue that the debate must be disentangled into several more specific debates in order to be interesting.
