Author’s Abstract

  1. What is the relationship between causality1 and intrinsicality? Is causation2 intrinsic? And what would it mean to claim this?
  2. Such questions have recently received some, much deserved, attention. Not only is there something strikingly intuitive in the idea that what causes what is determined by factors intrinsic to the causal process; its recent employment in dealing with tricky late preemption cases offers a line of argument for some connection.
