If you have a question about this talk, please contact Christopher Clarke.

I consider the normative question ‘Should the concept of causation be used in the sciences?’ from within a manipulationist framework. In particular, I will explore three distinct reasons why manipulationists of different stripes (i.e. interventionists and agency theorists) might be compelled to answer this question in the negative.

This talk is part of the CamPoS (Cambridge Philosophy of Science) seminar series.
