A response to
Author’s Introduction (extracts)
… that a baseball caused a certain window to shatter? Or
… that the parts of the ball caused the window to shatter? Or
… that the event of the ball’s striking the window caused the window to shatter? Or
… that the fact that the ball struck the window caused the window to shatter? Or
… something else?
One wants to say all of these things! That is certainly the natural view. What is supposed to be the problem with overdetermination?
